ASA EDUCATION AND CAREER PLANNING CENTERS
A national initiative that encourages young people to have high expectations, stay in school, study hard, and take the right courses to go to college. Students who complete the program may be eligible for a scholarship once enrolled in college. We have a GEAR UP program at the Mario Umana Academy in East Boston, Mass. If you are a student at that school and are interested in applying for this program, you can find the information here:
Upward Bound helps students develop the academic skills necessary to graduate from high school and get a college degree. Through an academic year after-school program and a summer program, we offer enrichment activities and workshops that focus on college and career readiness, financial aid, standardized testing, and cultural development to low-income and at-risk Brockton High School students.
For more information, students can speak with their guidance counselor at Brockton High School or visit the Upward Bound Office, Yellow Science.
