Academic Year Program

Penny Experiment

Between September and May, Upward Bound participants attend enrichment classes on 12 Saturdays on the campus of Frostburg State University. Students receive enrichment classes in areas of writing, literature, math, science and foreign language. Students may also attend classes offering SAT and ACT preparation as well as the PARCC and ACUPLACER tests.

Seniors attend College Planning which covers the college application process, including financial aid. Many classes take place in computer labs.

Students also have the opportunity to participate in various activities during the academic year. These may involve plays and cultural events on FSU's campus or occasional visits to a local corn maze.

The Director and Assistant Director visit each student at school the week prior to an Upward Bound Saturday to monitor student progress, to provide information on various educational opportunities, and to inform students about forthcoming cultural events in the area or on campus.

Upward Bound further provides academic advising, college campus visits, tutoring, and cultural opportunities.
