Upward Bound at LNESC Dallas helps students transition from high school to their “best fit” college.
Our year-round services are provided at no cost to students or their parents.
LNESC Dallas annually receives $527,875, which covers 90+ percent of our total program, from the US Department of Education to implement two (2) Upward Bound projects in the southwestern corner of Dallas that provide fundamental support to participants in their preparation for college entrance. 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. Upward Bound serves high school students from low-income families and high school students from families in which neither parent holds an Associates's or Bachelor's degree. This program is completely free for all participants.
