Reviews & Testimonials
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!
Summer Springboard is an absolutely amazing program and I highly recommend it. It has taught me many things, not only my track course, but about myself and how to be successful. I was in the Technology and Innovation track and I can honestly say it was one of the best experiences I have ever had. This program is life changing and worth while with an open mind. I'd like to thank Dianna and the rest of the Summer Springboard team for making my time at Yale special and memorable. I'd also like to thank my incredible track instructor, Mr.Tynes.
Summer Spring Board is a great pre-college program. It helped my daughter learn more about the career she wants to go in to. And it helped her gain the college expierence she wanted to get. Highly recommend this program!
