Why Summer Springboard?

Career & Academic Exploration

Career & Academic Exploration

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

The True You

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

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.

About Summer Springboard

Politics & Public Policy

Learn from experts in the field about congressional campaigns, legislative priorities, and emerging national issues. Explore how America’s changing culture is impacting political movements.

Immerse yourself in the American political system as you draft legislation to represent your political goals. Use your power of persuasion to convince others of the value of your bill and move it from your committee to the Senate floor. Negotiate with other political parties and special interest groups that are attempting to change or derail your bill and ultimately, a debate and vote will decide if your legislation will become law.

Learning Outcomes

– Stage a mock Presidential election and strategize a plan to secure your candidate’s success or even campaign for votes as you run for President

– Participate in a Senate simulation where you will champion your ideas and passions into legislation to become law, moving it from Committee to the Senate floor

– Learn about the role political parties, public opinion, and special interest groups can have on shaping behavior and policies at the federal, state, and local levels

Campus Locations

We are proud to partner with Georgetown 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.

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.
