  2. Find relevant local education and career paths: Our programs are tailored for local Singaporeans to succeed in their future college and career tracks, while also opening the world of Singapore to Americans and other international students
  3. Learn through experience by interacting with students from all around the world, figuring out how to collaborate together, and tackling business, international relations or engineering in a hands-on way
  4. Live locally: For those students based in Singapore, this is a wonderful opportunity to travel locally to a pre-college program that combines the best of American university prep with a meaningful Singaporean approach to pre-career learning

“I learned so much and had a wonderful time immersing myself in the academic program. I was presented with many amazing opportunities that I never would have been exposed to had it not been for Summer Springboard. Last but not least, I made lifelong friends. I owe so much to this program. Thank you for these extraordinary opportunities.”

“My daughter attended last summer at UC Berkeley and her experience in the program was superb! It really impacted her on both personal and academic levels. From the people she met, to her class and instructor, to the excursions, to the True You curriculum, everything was top notch and we were just so pleased with the amazing experience she had. She tells everyone about her time at Summer Springboard, which tells us that it really was something that meant so much to her. Look into it, I am sure you will be happy you did!”
