UTSA Upward Bound

Upward Bound at UTSA is a TRiO program for select students attending Southside, Jay and Holmes High Schools that provides fundamental support to participants in their preparation for college entrance.


About Upward Bound 

The program provides opportunities for participants to succeed in their pre-college performance and ultimately in their higher education pursuits.

Upward Bound serves high school students from low-income families and high school students from families in which neither parent holds a bachelor’s degree. The goal of Upward Bound is to increase the rate at which participants complete secondary education and enroll in and graduate from institutions of postsecondary education.
