College Access Programs

Trinity University's Department of Education has a long history of offering educational opportunities and programs to students throughout San Antonio. Through three distinct programs, Trinity creates opportunities to bring the talents, energy and enthusiasm of our undergraduates, faculty and staff to provide rich educational experiences for K-12 students across the community.

Promoting college access and readiness

Upward Bound

Upward Bound programs provide fundamental support to their participants in preparation for college. The program provides opportunities for participants to succeed in their precollege coursework in high school and ultimately in their higher education pursuits.

Trinity University's College Advising Corps

Trinity University's College Advising Corps places exceptional recent graduates from all fields of study on high school campuses as near-peer college advisers to lead low-income, first-generation, and underrepresented students to college. Trinity currently has 16 college advisers in San Antonio-area high schools employed full time through this program, and earning AmeriCorps Service Scholarships for graduate studies or college loan pay-off.
