Providing    the    Resources    Needed     for    Success    in    Higher    Education


Saturday Academies

Attendance at Saturday academies is required of students simply because we cannot influence you if we do not spend time with you.  The schedule is set now for the entire year; however, students will receive reminders in their school announcements and postcard about each activity approximately one week prior.  Activities, which have two dates listed, involve overnight commitments.

Weekly Meetings/Tutoring

Freshman/Sophomore weekly meetings last for one hour according to the following schedule.

Anaconda High                       Tuesday @ 6pm in Counseling Center          

Butte High                               Monday @ 3pm in Room #408                     

Capital High                            Thursday @ 3:30pm in Room #24

Helena High                            Tuesday @ 3:30pm in Room #24                  

 Junior/Senior meetings will last for one hour and are arranged with their coordinator on a contractual basis.  

All students are expected to arrive to meetings on time and fully participate because the activities are designed to fulfill the mission of Upward Bound.

Each week, tutoring is offered one hour after Freshman/Sophomore meetings.  All grade levels of students are encouraged to attend; receiving tutoring or serving as a peer tutor.
