About Upward Bound

Mission Statement

Weatherford College Upward Bound motivates and prepares students who are underrepresented in higher education through effective learning and cultural opportunities that enrich the lives of its students.

The Vision

WC Upward Bound's vision is to produce students who will impact their families and communities as a result of their participation in educational, social, and cultural services offered by the program. We will facilitate success in the high school classroom, culminating with acceptance into an institution of higher education. Each student will leave the program with the tools and knowledge to become a thriving college student and citizen.
