SSB's 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.
Get a leg up in your field of interest while getting a taste of campus life at a top university campus. These two-week programs located at some of the nation’s leading colleges and universities -- as well as some international campuses such as Oxford -- focus on hands-on learning, career exploration and college prep. Choose from one of over 30 academic tracks taught by accomplished professors.
Summer Springboard was founded with the aim of fostering self-discovery: we believe that knowing what makes you unique is crucial in reaching academic and personal goals, and profoundly impacting the world around you. Beyond acadamic immersion, SSB offers guest speakers, insight into the higher education admissions process and the opportunity to explore different electives. Students live in residence halls with roommates for a truly collegiate experience. Students who live locally can also participate as Commuters to take advantage of the academic components but return home each afternoon.
SSB also offers virtual academic and internship programs through our Online Academy options. Take your learning to the next level from the comfort of home--or anywhere with internet access.
