Created by College Board, SpringBoard is driven by its mission to prepare students for college and beyond. It’s a research-based, classroom-tested curriculum designed to help students develop the skills and knowledge most important for state assessments, Advanced Placement® (AP), and college and career readiness standards.
Aligned to College Board Programs
SpringBoard is fully aligned with the instructional principles and focus of Pre-AP, helping prepare students for future success.
Connections to AP are woven throughout all SpringBoard materials, and every unit of instruction calls out specific connections that prepare students to succeed in AP.
SpringBoard supports students as they develop the skills and knowledge they need to succeed on the PSAT 8/9, PSAT 10, PSAT/NMSQT®, and SAT.
Advancing Student Learning Through On-level Instruction
SpringBoard is a carefully scaffolded curriculum that gives teachers the tools to address rigor, ensuring that all students can achieve their highest potential. Here’s how our program accomplishes that:
Backed by Research
Data shows that SpringBoard improves classroom engagement and college readiness. A nationwide study found that, when schools used SpringBoard, students received higher SAT scores and took more AP courses and exams. SpringBoard helps more students succeed.
We know teachers thrive when they are supported, can share what they know, and fulfill their calling. That’s why partnership—with teachers, as well as administrators and school districts—is key to SpringBoard. Led by master SpringBoard teachers, high-quality professional learning is available online, anytime, anywhere, or in person to prepare instructors and administrators with insight, expertise, and first-hand experiences. It’s hands-on, interactive, and designed to foster strong instruction by making teachers confident in their ability to make the most of SpringBoard.
