Upward Bound Math & Science Summer Academy Program

June 3 - July 12, 2024

Lots of students on a road in front of buildings

Between June 3-July 3, 2024, we offer a FREE non-residential academic camp provided on the main campus of ECTC to simulate a college experience.

UBMS teachers use this time to help students strengthen their skills in math, science, English and Spanish. The program includes:

  • Transportation
  • Outings such as college visits, STEM enrichment field trips and more
  • Daily breakfast and lunch
  • Fun activities

Those students that attend 10 or more classes are eligible to attend our end of camp UBMS cultural trip to Chicago, Illinois from July 8 through July 11th.

Camp will conclude with virtual check-ins with UBMS teachers and staff on July 11 & July 12th.
