Why Summer Springboard?

Our mission is to help pre-college students increase their self-awareness so they can make decisions about college selection, academic majors, and careers that reflect their personal vision for success.

Career and Academic Exploration

We provide hands-on learning with our project-based learning methodology. Beyond theory, there will be program excursions and guest speakers for students to hear firsthand from experts in their field. 

The True You

Through self-assessments, campus visits, guided reflection and college admissions coaching, students become empowered to identify their individual vision of academic success and happiness.

College Experience

Spend two weeks experiencing life on a college campus. While there’s a full schedule of activities, there is time for students to have fun, make new friends, and learn to live like a college student.

We are proud to locate our program at some of the nation’s leading colleges and universities to offer students a rich taste of life on a major campus. Each campus has been selected for our summer enrichment programs based on outstanding academic excellence and rigor, reputation for safety and comfort, and capacity to inspire students to reach their full potential.

Note: Summer Springboard programs are not run by our campus partners. Universities and their affiliated departments are not responsible for the Summer Springboard program in any way.
