UPWARD BOUND, BOSTON UNIVERSITY @ C.A.S.H.
C.A.S.H. students are fortunate to be able to take advantage of the unique partnership that we have built with Boston University's Upward Bound Program. Upward Bound (UB) at Boston University is a federally funded college preparatory program for potential first-generation college and low-income Boston Public High School students. The program, which is a part of Boston University's Boston Public Schools Collaborative Office within the School of Education, serves 86 students who are recruited from one of our target high schools in our target neighborhoods, C.A.S.H. being one of them and our students are given high priority in the admissions process.
Students are expected to remain with the program until their graduation from high school. Program services include an academically intensive six-week summer residential program and an afterschool program of tutoring and academic courses during the school year. Upward Bound services are located on the Boston University campus, which provides students with access to the University's resources. The program is free and students are paid a small stipend for their participation.
