Upward Bound

Upward Bound is a free, nationwide pre-college program for high school students.

Through the program, students receive academic support, one-on-one counseling and exposure to cultural and educational activities. Upward Bound students develop the skills and motivation needed to succeed in high school and ultimately in college and professional careers. The CCBC Catonsville and Dundalk campuses each host an Upward Bound program.

CCBC Catonsville Upward Bound recruits students from Lansdowne and Woodlawn High Schools. We also recruit from three eligible zip coded (21207, 21227, and 21244).

CCBC Dundalk Upward Bound serves students attending Chesapeake, Dundalk, Kenwood, Parkville, Patapsco, and Overlea High Schools.
