VHS Freshmen and Parents:
Southeastern Oklahoma State University is accepting applications for the Upward Bound Program. All applicants must be a high school freshman. The deadline is October 4th. You may pick up an application from the black stand outside my office door.
What is Upward Bound?
Upward Bound is a college based program that combines academic instruction, tutoring, college preparation, and cultural awareness to provide participants a solid foundation for secondary and postsecondary success. The program provides services throughout the school year to each student in their home school and weekly/bi-weekly after school meetings. In addition, the students will meet once a semester on the campus of Southeastern Oklahoma State University.
During the summer, eligible students are given the opportunity to participate in a residential program. The students reside in a residential hall on Southeastern’s campus and attend classes to improve their academic skills or obtain college credit. The experience prepares them to succeed in a college environment after they graduate from high school. Some students will be eligible to earn from 6 to 13 credit hours when they complete the program. Which is equivalent to a semester of college paid for by the Upward Bound program.
