Upward Bound

Lourdes University TRiO Upward Bound is committed to providing support to participants in their preparation for post-secondary education, and to increase the rates at which these participants enroll in and graduate from college. Our program helps participants succeed by providing cultural and educational opportunities to encourage both academic and personal growth. Fulfilling this mission is possible because of the cooperation with Toledo Public Schools and Student Services at Lourdes University.

Upward Bound staff is concerned with the academic, cultural and social growth of each student. The program aims to motivate students toward attainment of realistic educational goals beyond high school. The Upward Bound experience is a developmental one; therefore, the student is encouraged to continue participation in the program until after high school graduation. Parents are encouraged to be involved with the Upward Bound Program through participation in the Parents Alliance and by supporting the attendance of their students in all phases of the program.
