Ohio University College Bound, located in The Patton College of Education, provides Athens and Vinton County high school students who are potential first-generation college students with readiness skills and support services that cultivate resilience, confidence, and preparation for a healthy and successful transition to a postsecondary institution upon high school graduation.

Students receive assistance in preparing for the ACT/SAT, college applications, financial aid, and many more areas regarding academic and personal success.
The program's main objectives include:
- Developing both academic and noncognitive strengths of our students to increase participation and persistence in a post-secondary institution upon high school graduation.
- Increasing motivation to attend college/post-secondary institutions by providing opportunities to explore colleges and career paths.
