Who We Are

Springboard Education is one of the nation’s leading providers of extended learning programs for students at a wide variety of elementary and middle schools. Utilizing research-based programming, Springboard’s before- and after-school programs reinforce school day learning with compelling activities that target academic skills, social and emotional development, physical well-being and healthy choices. Parents love that Springboard programs continuously deliver exciting, motivating and fun activities for students that extend their learning into the out-of-school-time environment.

Springboard is owned by an investment group led by Bridges Ventures, a London based specialist fund manager which is dedicated to using an impact-driven investment approach to create returns for both investors and society at-large.

What I value most is the Springboard staff's efforts to be part of our community; they have worked with our teachers, support staff and administrators to align their program with our school's areas of focus and to support the work being done in our classrooms.
