Upward Bound

What is Upward Bound?

Hopkinsville Community College Upward Bound, a federally funded TRIO program, serves 65 high school students in Christian County, Kentucky to prepare for college.

What are the requirements?

To participate in the Upward Bound program, students will complete an application packet to determine eligibility. A student/parent admission interview is also conducted for eligible applicants.

What are the program benefits?

During the school year, students regularly meet with staff who provide individual academic advising, monitor grades, and assist with tutoring. Students attend monthly high school and Saturday educational enrichment workshops that include college planning assistance, study skills, and cultural programs.

Summer Program

The summer program is a six-week learning experience while pursuing a variety of cultural and educational goals. Students are enrolled in classes throughout the day designed to encourage written and oral communication, foreign language, mathematics, and science skills. A cultural field trip (usuallyfour days) and college visits are also part of the summer program.

Senior Bridge Program

High school seniors are assisted with college planning including college and financial aid application and entrance exam preparation. Job shadowing is available to those wishing to explore possible major and career opportunities. Additionally, senior summer bridge program participants may enroll in a college class at HCC in order to earn college credit prior to high school graduation.
