TRIO Upward Bound is a college preparatory program funded by the U.S. Department of Education. Upward Bound programs across the country provide opportunities for first generation/low-income high school students to complete high school and enroll and succeed in a post-secondary program of study. The Upward Bound program at the College of Saint Benedict/Saint John's University has been successfully serving students since 1995. Our current grant serves 9th-12th grade students from St. Cloud Tech High School, St. Cloud Apollo High School, Sauk Rapids-Rice High School and Willmar High School.
We will continue to align our program services with state guidelines.
