Developing Lifelong Learners

During the COVID pandemic, many challenges were encountered by our community. LNESC MIAMI continued to provide uninterrupted Upward Bound educational services to our students/families. Contactless educational instruction and program services were made possible through the use of technology and creativity. This pandemic taught us that perseverance, hard work, optimism, patience and good will are all within each one of us. LNESC Miami staff will continue to assist all our students and their families to continue striving for educational excellence and making the dream of attending college a reality.
