What We Do
Student Launch Pad provides one-on-one performance coaching for high school and early college students. Here are the details on our programs:
Module One: Student Launch Pad™ Program:
Ignite Your Future
Challenge: Are you overwhelmed by the endless possibilities for your future?
High schoolers, do you want to make the most of your high school years to get accepted to your dream college?
College students, do you want to identify what major and career are best for you?
Solution: With hundreds of colleges to choose from and endless extracurricular activities to get involved in, it’s often difficult to navigate where you are best suited. Then in college, the possibilities for majors, internships, and career paths seem infinite! Through a series of assessments, exercises, and one-on-one mentoring, we’ll help you discover your sweet spot, where your strengths, passions, and values intersect for your ultimate future!
We ensure that both the student’s and parents’ goals are met.
Student Launch Pad’s program is designed with the student and parent in mind. In the weekly coaching sessions, the coach explains, analyzes, and helps the student apply their assessment results and exercises. At the end of our coaching program, parents are debriefed on their child’s assessment results and experiences in the program. Parents have told us that through Student Launch Pad, they learned how to best communicate with their child, understand what motivates them, and set them up for success in activities that are best suited for their strengths.
How Coaching Works: In our 7-week coaching program, students have 7 one-on-one coaching sessions that last an hour each. Before each coaching session, students will either take an assessment or complete reflection exercises. As a part of the program, students are enrolled in our online learning program, where all of the assessment tests, activities, and exercises that are a part of Student Launch Pad are housed. The online program also provides access to numerous resources and videos, and students receive a personalized portfolio of their assessment results and exercises at the end of the program. Parents are invited to join the last coaching session to be debriefed on the students’ results and experiences in the program.
Scheduling of coaching sessions are flexible according to the student’s needs. All coaching sessions are done via Skype. If you are in the Atlanta area, you have the option of choosing one of our in-person coaching locations, yet the coaching benefits are no different whether in person or through video coaching.

Module Two: POWERAPP™ Program:
Getting Accepted To The Colleges Of Your Choice
Challenge: Need some help with your college applications?
Are you struggling to write your essays, not sure what colleges want to hear?
Would you like one-on-one coaching to guide you in selecting colleges, and finishing your applications and essays with excellence to get accepted into your dream college?
Solution: After the Student Launch Pad Program, students will have a list of colleges that are a good fit based on their future plans and college major. Now that the Student Launch Pad Program has helped you discover what you want to do in college, the POWERAPP Program will help you get into your dream college!
By using their portfolio results from the Student Launch Pad Program, students are equipped with knowing their strengths, interests, personality traits, leadership abilities, and achievements. Through POWERAPP the coach will guide the student on how to communicate these qualities through the college application, essays, short answer responses, and interviews.
How Coaching Works: After the 7-week Student Launch Pad Program, you’ll start POWERAPP. Through Student Launch Pad, you’ll have made a plan on what colleges to apply to and what areas of study to pursue. POWERAPP will then guide you through the application process. You will receive 8 hours of coaching on your college applications, including essay and short answer coaching, application and essay editing, and interview preparation. Your coach will guide you through the step-by-step process, and you can choose how you want to use your coaching hours depending on the areas that you want to focus on.
