Programming & Activities

CARE's Upward Bound Program hosts multiple programs and activities to encourage participants' academic and personal development. Activities are divided into Academic Year and Summer Residential programming.

The Academic Year

The Academic Year Program will consist of weekly study skill improvement sessions, instruction in Mathematics, English composition, Foreign Language, laboratory science and individualized tutoring at the school on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Sessions will begin immediately after school until 5:15 pm. There will also be weekly contact with program staff to provide academic advisement, career, personal, and social counseling.

The Summer Session

The Summer Residential Program is a six-week summer enrichment program where students stay on the Florida State University campus in Tallahassee. Classes consist of courses in Math, English, Science, and Foreign Language. The program also offers enrichment activities which include computer skills, music appreciation, creative writing, medical terminology, civic duty, senior seminar, and physical fitness. We will also conduct workshops based on academic survival skills, career exploration, life management skills, leadership training and social/cultural enrichment field trips on Fridays.
