The North Shore Community College (NSCC) TRIO Upward Bound (UB) Program is a federally funded program for low-income, first-generation, and/or academically at-risk high school students.

The UB program is a year-round program that provides academic and extracurricular services including academic year and summer instruction, tutoring, college tours, cultural events, health and fitness activities, educational workshops, and service activities.

The Academy serves approximately 46 students from the Lynn Public Schools. The Academy is staffed by four Instructors, four Learning Leaders, two Community Team Leaders, and two Program Assistants who work with the full-time program staff to provide an intensive six-week academic experience. The Summer Academy includes a four-week day program at North Shore Community College's Lynn Campus (M-F) and a two-week residential component at UMass Amherst (M-F and weekends).


The Summer Instructors provide a range of services during the Summer Academy including instructional (classroom instruction and project-based learning,-non-credit) and non-instructional (leading facilitated study sessions, chaperoning and participating in co-curricular activities, and administering standardized testing). The Summer Instructors have a shared responsibility for dormitory supervision of project participants during the residential summer component at UMass Amherst.
