    Saint Francis University's STEM Summer Academies are week-long programs designed to provide an opportunity for talented high school students between their sophomore/junior and junior/senior years to experience science, engineering, and computer science in action.

    A federal TRIO program funded through the U.S. Department of Education, the Upward Bound program at Saint Francis University has prepared over 1,500 disadvantaged high school students for the rigors of post-secondary education since 1966. Provided at no cost to participants, the program offers a wide variety of academic, career, cultural, and social development activities for 85 high school students from Blair and Cambria counties. Each participant must come from a low income family and/or be a potential first-generation college student. In addition, students must attend a high school in the target area, be enrolled in the academic curriculum, and have a minimum academic GPA of 77%.

    From September through May, the students participate in Saturday follow-ups held on campus and tutorials held after school in their communities. Additional academic year activities include college visits, SAT cram sessions, and college fairs. During a six-week residential summer program, students attend five academic classes each day and participate in a wide variety of cultural and recreation activities. Each summer Upward Bound Bridge students take Saint Francis University courses for credit. The program is housed in Schwab Hall.
