THE SUMMER SPRINGBOARD EXPERIENCE
About Summer Springboard
Our mission is to help students increase their self-awareness so they can make decisions about college selection, academic majors, and careers that reflect their personal vision for success.
Summer Springboard was founded to give college-bound teens a supportive environment where they can explore their personal and academic passions. Our innovative pre-college summer program combines the benefits of an academically challenging summer experience with tools and frameworks for personal leadership development and self-discovery.
iXperience started in 2013 as a study abroad coding bootcamp that would bridge the gap between academia and industry.
Since then, it’s grown into a global operation that has helped more than 2500 students accelerate their careers while exploring the world.
Throughout, their focus has stayed on creating authentic connections within communities. They go to great lengths to get to know their students, teachers, and partner companies, as they believe is instrumental to mutual success.
