For Parents

Imagine if...

Imagine if you knew what it really took to succeed in your career and personal life when you were a teenager. Imagine the opportunities you could have seized, or the moments you would have appreciated, or the conversations you may have had if you knew more about your strengths, weaknesses, goals and dreams as a young person.

As parents, we know that you want the best for your son and daughter. We know that you’re always encouraging them to try new experiences, to succeed academically and reach their full potential.

A New Kind of Pre-College Summer Program for Teens

Summer Springboard is different from other programs. We’ve found a fun and engaging way to give you a strong base foundation to reflect on who you are as an individual with an exciting academic curriculum where you can learn about and explore new subject areas. Then we tie it all together with our True You curriculum that will help you better understand yourself and where you want to go in life.

We’ve been in your shoes and want to help you gain clarity on potential academic majors or career areas that you find interesting. We want to help you explore your passion…or find a new one. More importantly we want to help you understand and reflect on what really makes you tick. What’s important to you? What are your strengths and weaknesses? Knowing this now before you even step foot on a college campus will help to better prepare for you the road ahead.
