Alumni Achievement Association

The Alumni Achievement Association (A3) is a collection of former participants of the Montclair State University Upward Bound Project. Since 1999 the Montclair State University Upward Bound Project has been committed to enhance each Scholars’ opportunity to successfully graduate from High School and complete a post-secondary education.

The mission of the Alumni Achievement Association is to strengthen the relationships between alumni and the current scholars; support the transition of current high school students to college life; create mentorship opportunities between alumni and current participants; and work in partnership with the Upward Bound Project to encourage participation in its programs, activities and development efforts.
