ABERDEEN, S.D. – Area high school students will be on the Northern State University campus starting June 3 for the annual Upward Bound summer program.
Upward Bound serves first-generation college students as well as those who have low income. The goal is to help these students prepare for, enroll in and graduate from college. Northern’s Upward Bound program serves students in grades 9-12 from Aberdeen Central, Britton-Hecla, Doland, Frederick, Langford, Waubay, Webster, Wilmot and Sisseton high schools.
Students live on campus for the six-week summer program, which includes courses in math, science, art and English. This year’s summer program ends July 12. The students are taken to visit colleges and universities of all types – public and private – and to cultural locations such as museums. They also perform community service projects.
