Pre-College Programs

The College of St. Scholastica is one of only 47 post-secondary institutions nationwide with at least five federally funded TRIO Programs on campus. Three of these programs - Educational Talent Search, Upward Bound, and Upward Bound Math and Science - specifically serve students in grades 6-12. These college preparatory programs aim to increase the number of low-income, first-generation students who go on to post-secondary programs.
