Developing Lifelong Learners
LNESC Albuquerque distinctively operates three TRiO Upward Bound programs at Highland High School, Atrisco Heritage Academy, and Valley High School. Upward Bound is designed to provide opportunities for eligible participants to succeed in their precollege performance and ultimately in their higher education pursuits.
“LNESC Upward Bound has helped me maintain high grades and different opportunities to learn. They’ve also taught me different life skills. I learned how to write a resume and cover letter for the first time. The Saturday Academies cover issues facing the world or just everyday issues we face and how to cope.”
−Andres, Valley High School
“I joined the LNESC Albuquerque Upward Bound at Highland High School in 2009. They supported me throughout my high school and college career. I took advantage of the after-school tutoring, summer classes with ACT prep, college visits, college course preparation, networking with peers and early exposure to college. Being the first in my family to attend and graduate from both a bachelor's program as well as a master’s program means a lot to me. Upward Bound helped shape who I have become today.”
