Academic Calendar

Upward Bound Program - Jacksonville University - 256-7150

 

 During the Academic School Year, students visit JU each Saturday and receive help in classes they are currently taking at their local high school. Students arrive by 8:00am for Morning Assembly and then attend classes from 8:30am-11:40am. On Seminar Saturdays (1st Saturday of each month), students stay until 2pm, enjoying both lunch and a guest speaker to encourage continued growth and broaden their horizons culturally and socially. Students are transported by a bus that will pick them up from their target high schools. Parents/ Guardians are also free to drop off their student(s) as well.
