Located in the picturesque city of Colorado Springs, Colorado, this center is home to national attractions such as the Olympic Training Center, the United States Olympic & Paralympic Museum, the United State Air Force Academy, Garden of the Gods and the famous Pikes Peak. In 2012, Colorado LNESC added Upward Bound and Upward Bound Math & Science Program to our education services that reach into the communities of our diverse population. Colorado LNESC offers our students the opportunity to apply for the CSU-Ft. Collins Partnership Award and the LNESC STAR Scholarship.
