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, starting their own business, or landing their first job at SpaceX or Google.

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