University Prep’s LaunchPad is a two-week, real world experience for students to step off-campus and work in an environment that speaks to their personal passions and/or their professional, vocational, or academic curiosities. As an evolution of UPrep's Senior Project, students may meet this graduation requirement in junior or senior year, independently or within a designated, LaunchPad-eligible course.

From shadowing software engineers to maintaining hiking trails to helping manage a Pilates studio to producing original music, LaunchPad gives students the chance to engage with the world beyond UPrep and practice the skills they’ll need after they graduate.
