​U​pw​ard Bound

Norco College currently has three Upward Bound Programs. The programs predominately serve first-generation, low-income students attending: Cen​​tennial High School, Corona High School, and Norte Vista High School.  Each high school has its own Upward Bound Program. The Upward Bound Program is 100% federally funded through the U.S. Department of Education, TRIO program. 

Norco College Upward Bound provides students with academic guidance, personal development and fundamental support to participants in ​​their preparation for college entrance. The program provides opportunities for participants to succeed in their precollege performance and ultimately in their higher education pursuits.
