Upward Bound – Shelton

Upward Bound Shelton is 100% funded by a grant  of $287,538 annually from the U.S. Dept. of Education for college access and student success programming at Shelton High School

Upward Bound Shelton is one of five college access grants held by The Evergreen State College. Our mission is to help students from low-income backgrounds to become the first in their families to graduate from college, achieve their dreams, and become productive, caring, and responsible adults.

Our program is successful because of the dedicated and constant support we provide our students. Shelton High School is staffed daily with Upward Bound professionals who meet with students regularly providing academic advising, assisting with college and scholarship applications, and leading after school tutoring and workshops. This level of support keeps our students on track for college success.
