About Summer Springboard

Look Inward. Go Upward.

Your journey to success and life achievement is complex and deeply personal. Your aspirations may be very different from another’s. At Summer Springboard, we believe goals can best be realized when you have a true sense of what makes you unique—your strengths, weaknesses, interests and dreams. Armed with this knowledge, you will have the tools and skills you need to leap forward, reach your academic and personal goals, and profoundly impact the world around you.

A Summer Program That Prepares You for Life

There’s a reason some of the most popular courses at leading colleges, like Harvard University and Stanford University, focus on happiness and crafting a fulfilling life. Hungry to learn how to be their best selves, students seek out the knowledge and insights they need as they set out on their own personal life adventures. Our summer enrichment programs are designed to provide high school students with tools that can help make that happen, for the rest of their high school years, in college and beyond.

Hands-On Academic Immersion

With Summer Springboard, you won’t sit in a lecture hall all day. Our high school summer programs blend a rich academic curriculum with dynamic workshops and projects that foster self-discovery and personal leadership development. You’ll spend the summer partnering with like-minded students, working together on stimulating real-world projects, reviewing the latest research findings on personal development, learning from leading industry experts in your field of interest, and exploring careers and personal passions.
