Upward Bound

Norco College currently has four Upward Bound Programs. The programs predominately serve first-generation, low-income students attending: Centennial High School, Corona High School, and Norte Vista High School.  Each high school has its own Upward Bound Program, with the exception of Norte Vista.  In 2023 Norco College was awarded an Upward Bound Math Science grant to serve Norte Vista High School. The Upward Bound Programs are 100% federally funded through the U.S. Department of Education, TRIO program. 

Norco College Upward Bound provides students with academic guidance, personal development and fundamental support to participants in their preparation for college entrance. The program provides opportunities for participants to succeed in their precollege performance and ultimately in their higher education pursuits.

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.
