TRiO College Access Services

If a bright future for yourself, your child, or your students is what you are looking for, you’ve come to the right place – TRiO College Access Services. We believe the jobs of the future will more often than not require some form of higher education. In addition, study beyond high school is linked closely with higher salary levels, and steadier employment, even in a recession. Knowing those facts doesn’t mean that getting there and actually earning a postsecondary degree is an easy process. Almost all families can use a helping hand now and then to make sure those educational goals become a reality. That’s what we’re all about.

TRiO College Access Services offers two TRiO Upward Bound projects in Aroostook County, and a brand new Educational Talent Search program. Click here to learn about this new program we’re offering and other changes to our office. We are now accepting applications for admission to both programs.

What’s the difference between Upward Bound and Educational Talent Search?

The overarching goal of all three programs offered by TRiO College Access Services is to help students with the motivation and skills they need to get into college, and then to succeed and earn a degree.
