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 a Certified B Corporation. Certified B Corporations are leaders of a global movement of people using business as a force for good.™ They meet the highest standards of overall social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability and aspire to use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. The unifying goal of all B Corporation is to redefine success in business.

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. Bridges currently manages over £600m across three types of funds: Sustainable Growth Funds, Property Funds and the Social Sector Funds.

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.
