SBC creates powerful learning experiences that challenge students to explore interests, discover new perspectives, connect with professionals in the community, and visualize their success beyond the classroom.

Success Beyond the Classroom’s (SBC) history includes 30+ years of working with schools to provide relevant, highly valued enrichment programs to students across the Minneapolis/St. Paul metropolitan area.

Whether the focus is on writing, engineering, exploring STEM careers, participating in academic competition, or creative thinking and problem solving, students at SBC events engage in hands-on activities with people they would otherwise unlikely meet. Each of SBC’s programs make it possible for students to “shine” as they discover what their future could hold. 

“It was great to see the many diverse opportunities for students to be exposed to other ideas and perspectives.”
