Summer Program

The Summer Program is a vital part of the Upward Bound experience. It is an intensive, six-week, residential program, which all members of the Upward Bound community are expected to attend. It starts at the beginning of June and finishes in early July. During this time the students spend their weekdays on the Troy University campus and return home for the weekends. The Summer Program itself is very scheduled, and is geared to create a sense of community.
