Galveston College Upward Bound, a TRIO Program funded through the U.S. Department
of Education, is a college preparatory program designed to serve 60 9th–12th grade
students at Ball High School. The goal of Upward Bound is to increase the rates at
which participants enroll in and graduate from institutions of post secondary education
by increasing the academic performance and motivation of participants.
TRIO programs are funded under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 and are
administered by the U.S. Department of Education.
These programs are designed to serve primarily individuals from low-income families
where neither parent has earned a four-year college degree.
