Independent School District 15 students will have the opportunity to participate in TRiO, an Upward Bound federally funded program of the U.S. Department of Education, for the 2012-13 school year. Anoka-Ramsey Community College is host to the program which is already providing services to students from Cambridge-Isanti, North Branch and Princeton. The program is designed to help eligible students succeed in completing high school and prepare them to go to college.
TRiO Upward Bound provides academic support and social, cultural, and recreational activities for students. The program provides opportunities for students to succeed in their pre-college performance and ultimately in their higher education pursuits. Upward Bound consists of an academic-year program and a six-week summer session. The goal of Upward Bound is to increase the rate at which participants complete secondary education and enroll in and graduate from institutions of postsecondary education. All TRiO Upward Bound services are provided free of charge.
