The emphasis of College Bound is to provide a foundation of knowledge regarding college entrance requirements and how to finance a college education. In addition, College Bound exposes its participants to a breadth of choices regarding college majors and career opportunities. The College Bound curriculum is synthesized into a developmentally appreciate and palatable organization format which supports the connection of the participant own interest to real world college majors and careers.
