Will College be Worth it for Your Student?

LaunchPad is for current and aspiring college students.

Will college be worth it for your kids?

 You want the best for your kids!  Like most of us, you assume "best" includes getting them a quality college education.  Yet you also wonder, "will it work?"  Will they graduate on time, with marketable skills, leading towards a career they enjoy?  Or will they end up a thirty year old,  with an expensive degree, asking to sleep on your couch! 

Great Investment or Expensive Experiment?

College Can Be Great: College can provide the learning skills, expertise, career exposure, and professional connections for an engaging and meaningful career.  College Can be an Expensive Experiment:  But 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 for many.

  1. Clear understanding of  talents through a rigorous assessment of their underlying abilities
  2. Space to explore talent-driven career options  through a four- hour workshop that links talent to college majors
  3. Parental connection through a one-hour debrief that includes highlights, next steps, and your student's summary of take aways
  4. Expert advice on crafting a plan through two sessions with certified professional coaches 

Compared to the alternatives, LaunchPad is a tremendous value.
