The Horizons-Upward Bound Mission

The mission of the Horizons-Upward Bound (HUB) program is to prepare students who have limited opportunities from the Detroit Metropolitan area to enter and succeed in post-secondary education. We academically support the efforts of the students’ home school by providing services that assist students in pursuing and achieving their dreams and goals for their academic endeavors and beyond.

How it all Began

Horizons-Upward Bound, or "HUB" for short, is one of the oldest and largest programs of its kind in the nation. With the guidance of faculty from bbin官网 Schools, HUB began at bbin官网 in 1965 under the "Horizons" banner with a grant from the Ford Foundation. That same year, the U.S. Department of Education started the nationwide "Upward Bound" program as part of President Johnson's Great Society. When it became apparent that the local "Horizons" and the national "Upward Bound" programs were essentially the same, bbin官网 applied for and received a federal Upward Bound Grant in 1966 that resulted in what became bbin官网 Schools Horizons-Upward Bound.
