Launchpad Studio
(Ages 15-17)

Committing to a Next Great Adventure


Launchpad (high school) is where learners prepare for the adventure of a lifetime, whether the next step is a selective college, launching their own business, or a first job at SpaceX or Google.

Extraordinary young leaders spend time doing something they love to do; inspired by world-class coaches and experts, having fun with friends as they create lifelong memories.

Launchpad heroes:

  • Prepare for the real world through challenging apprenticeships, interviews with industry leaders, and deep reflection on how your gifts and passions align with a need in the world.

  • Read deep literature, communicate clearly and powerfully, and tackle real-world computational challenges.

  • Wrestle with timeless moral dilemmas through Socratic discussions in Civilization and through studio governance.

  • Dive deep into college-level biology, chemistry, physics, engineering, finance, and psychology through immersive quests and public exhibitions.

  • Serve in leadership roles in lower studios, their community, and around the world in the Acton Network.
