May 3, 2022 – Giant Leaps, a San Diego-based education company, officially announced the launch of its online summer program designed to help future-proof creative and curious high school students and help them reach their fullest potential.
The 8-week online summer program builds confidence and critical thinking skills through 1-on-1 coaching and a personalized curriculum that encourages open-ended thinking and creative problem solving.
Giant Leaps students learn through curiosity, problem solving and creative thinking. They end up better prepared for college, careers, and the world beyond, with less anxiety and more confidence. The program encourages students to explore the incredible opportunities of their future while considering how they might truly flourish and find fulfillment.
“I’m going to grow up and I’m going to change the world and I’m going to lead. I’m going to take initiative. That’s what this program’s about. It’s about learning how to do that and what steps you need to take, because change is going to come. It’s inevitable, it’s going to happen. And we need leaders to step forward and be ready.” says Koryn S., a Giant Leaps student.
In the 8-week program, students access the self-paced curriculum through a web & mobile platform, meet with their dedicated success coach weekly for 1:1 support and meet with peer groups at key intervals as they progress. Students bring engaging topics home to discuss, complete offline introspective activities and participate in various virtual group events including guest speaker talks and peer group discussions.
Ultimately, the Giant Leaps program is designed to develop critical thinking skills, improve social-emotional wellbeing, and encourage a growth mindset… all skills required to succeed in the future, regardless of occupation.
“The world is changing more rapidly than ever before, and the way we prepare our kids to be leaders has not kept up. What do you want for your kids in the future? Do you want them to be successful, to be fulfilled, and to be truly prepared for what’s coming? That’s why we created Giant Leaps.” says Founder & CEO Michael Trezza.
