Academic Courses

At Summer Springboard we believe learning should be inspiring and interactive. We have worked hard to design courses, field trips and guest lectures that reflect the resources of the Austin area. Whenever possible, classes are held outdoors, on-site or in a lab-type setting to allow students as many ’hands on’ opportunities as possible. Field trips and guest speakers take the learning experience beyond the classroom and leverage all that Austin has to offer.

In addition to our academic morning courses, students spend the afternoon either in electives (i.e. Public Speaking, Creative Writing, Athletics, College Prep and Photography) or doing our True You program which explores elements of one's real self including strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities.
