Upward Bound. Program Objectives, Summer 1971.
Wesleyan Univ., Middletown, CT.
The primary program objectives were as follows: (1) The students will achieve passing grade in the college preparation program; (2) The students will achieve one year academic growth each year as measured by the SCAT and other standardized measurements; (3) The students will achieve the minimum PSAT percentile rank as anticipated for college entrance requirements; and, (4) Each student will achieve acceptance by a college or university. The activities of the Wesleyan Upward Bound Great Hollow Wilderness School are used as vehicles for "Motivational Ignition." A student's success at extending his physical, emotional, and psychological limits through these experiences, at various instances and to various degrees, will ignite motivation by increasing self-confidence, self-esteem, efficacy, and other desirable attitudes. The Upward Bound Summer Program represents a concerted effort to identify precisely what students are expected to achieve and to communicate this to students prior to the initiation of course work.
