VIDEO: Program puts high school students on college-bound trajectory

May 29, 2018

Last June, University of the Pacific was awarded a $1.3 million five-year federal grant for an Upward Bound project that provides students of Stockton's Edison High School instruction, tutoring, advising, and assistance with applying for financial aid and college to help them graduate and earn their college degrees.

Pacific considered several schools in the area with the greatest need and selected Edison based on factors such as dropout rate, college attendance and college completion rates, educational attainment and income levels in the surrounding area and other factors.  

This video features members of Edison's first Upward Bound class speaking about their experiences and how they have benefited from the program.
