College can be great

College can provide the expertise, career exposure, and professional connections that form the foundation for an engaging and meaningful career.   

However, college is costing more and taking longer than ever

With the average student changing majors at least three times and with the average time to complete college at just below six years, college is becoming an expensive experiment that lacks a clear benefit.

LaunchPad provides current and aspiring college students what you need to succeed

LaunchPad provides four things you need to succeed in college:

  1. Clear understanding of your talents through a rigorous assessment of your underlying abilities
  2. Space to explore talent-driven career options through a four-hour, interactive workshop
  3. Support through a debrief lunch for parents and others interested in your progress
  4. Expert advice on crafting your plan through two private coaching sessions with certified professional coaches 

LaunchPad is a tremendous value

LaunchPad provides the secrets for getting the most out of college…

  • For just slightly more than the average cost of a credit hour ($600)
  • For much less than the cost of an extra year of school ($20,000–$75,000)
  • And infinitely less than landing in a job that doesn’t fit


  • By Sept. 7: Take the assessment online (codes delivered upon registration)
  • Sept. 14, 8:00 am: LaunchPad Workshop for students
  • Sept. 14, 12–1:30 pm: Parent Debrief Lunch
