About Upward Bound Math & Science

The Upward Bound Math and Science program (UBMS) at Elizabethtown Community and Technical College (ECTC) is TRIO program funded by the US Department of Education.

The primary goal of our program is to provide academic support to eligible students to help them develop the skills and self-confidence necessary to succeed in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) related academic programs and careers beyond high school.

Students will participate in academic, social, recreational, and cultural activities designed to inspire, motivate, and prepare them to persist and be successful in secondary education, navigate the college admissions process, and complete a postsecondary education program. The limits are endless with UBMS!

In order to meet our goal, we provide students with many opportunities for growth, including:

  • A challenging and fun Summer Academy program with a focus on boosting math, science, English, and foreign language skills for students going into or currently attending high school.
  • Our graduating high school seniors can jump start their college careers in the summer after graduation by participating in our Summer Bridge program that covers the cost of two college classes at ECTC.
  • Exploring the world around them by participating in field trips, college tours, and a capstone Summer Cultural Trip.
  • A supportive Academic Year program designed to provide academic tutoring, mentorship, and motivation to keep our students at the top of their class.
