Welcome to Upward Bound - Coon Rapids Campus
TRiO Upward Bound is a federally funded College Readiness program for first-generation high school students in the North Metro area. Our students are determined, motivated and prepared to be successful in college and in life!
They spend extra hours during the week at after-school tutoring in their schools.
One of their Saturday's a month is spent with our entire Upward Bound at Anoka-Ramsey Community College in Coon Rapids, learning the necessarily skills, tools and knowledge it takes to be college ready.
During the summer, Upward Bound students spend 5 weeks taking classes, followed by an enrichment trip exposing them to many colleges in the area.
