Marian University’s Upward Bound Math and Science (UBMS) program is gearing up to host its eleventh Pre-college and Career Readiness Summer Academy.  Marian’s UBMS program provides educational services during the academic year and for a six-week period during the summer.  It is primarily funded by the U.S. Department of Education, with additional institutional support, which allows the program to provide its services at no cost to participants and families.

The 2023 UBMS summer academy will be held from Monday, June 19 to Friday, July 28.  Students enrolled and entering Grades 9-12 in September 2023 at either the Fond du Lac or North Fond du Lac School District are encouraged to apply.  Program participants must meet eligibility requirements.

This year’s summer academy will be held on campus.  Participants will have the opportunity to be involved in multiple intellectually stimulating activities as well as independent learning experiences.  Professionals from various fields will conduct workshops in the areas of academic support, college enrollment planning, career exploration, financial education, and personal development.  Local educators will teach the following courses:

  • Applied Mathematics
  • English Composition
  • World Languages
  • Laboratory Science
  • World Literature

“The Upward Bound (UBMS) program is designed to make a tremendous difference in the life of its participants.  For the past 11 years, in addition to supporting qualified local high school students in their quest to succeed in high school, it provides enriching college and career preparation experiences that can benefit participants for a lifetime.  Students often will not understand the full extent of the positive impacts the program will have on their lives.  These experiences will increase their success in the classroom and encourage them in the pursuit of higher education opportunities,” shared Garry Moïse, M.S., TRIO/Upward Bound Math and Science (UBMS) Program Director.
