|Über uns||Welcome to the official page of the Salish Kootenai College Upward Bound program!|
SKC Upward Bound is a federally funded TRiO program which provides low-income, potentially first-generation college students with the motivation and academic skills necessary for success in high school and post-secondary education. The program provides a high-quality comprehensive college-preparatory curriculum for 84 eligible students willing to make a commitment to academic and leadership challenges.
Upward Bound provides academic year services such as: weekly academic tutoring and advising, cultural and academic enrichment, college and career planning, ACT preparation, educational field trips, community service opportunities, college visits, financial literacy, and scholarship assistance.
During a six-week residential summer program at SKC, students engage in college-preparatory courses, Native American cultural activities, a diverse set of elective courses, outdoor adventures, community service opportunities, and regional college tours.
