Senior LaunchPad

What is LaunchPad?

University Prep’s LaunchPad is a two-week real world experience for seniors that offers them an opportunity to step outside of the classroom and work in an environment that speaks to their personal passions and/or to their professional, vocational, or academic curiosities.

As an evolution of UPrep’s Senior Project, LaunchPad was created in 2017 as an opportunity for every senior to spend their final two weeks of high school outside of the classroom and working on a self-designed experiential educational project. From shadowing software engineers to maintaining hiking trails to helping manage a Pilates studio to producing original music, LaunchPad is designed to give students a chance to engage with the world beyond UPrep and practice those real-world skills they’ll need after they graduate.
