Summer Activities
Upward Bound also offers participation opportunities during the summer months. 


Student Trip


Summer Academy

This is the largest and most intensive component of the Upward Bound grant project.

Summer Academy is a 6-week residential program on the WTAMU campus available to all rising Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors.

Activities and services provided during Summer Academy include, but are not limited to:

  • Intensive in-class instruction in Math, Science, English, and Foreign Language
  • Study skills, test-taking skills, organizational skills, and time management development
  • Interpersonal and social skills development
  • Career and college major exploration
  • Group project and research opportunities



Students who successfully complete the Summer Academy component are given the opportunity to go on a Culture Trip, in which they will tour various colleges/universities and tour different cities.

Students not only learn about what institutions are available for attending but also about the local culture and career opportunities of a city. Sometimes, there are other opportunities for travel during the academic year and summer months for students to tour additional colleges and universities.
