The Application Process

Applications are currently closed for Launchpad’s first cohort. Applications will re-open in Fall 2023 for our 2024 cohort. To apply, you will submit: a brief student application, a parent/guardian form, and a document release form. Once you submit your application, we will contact you to schedule an in-person interview with the Launchpad staff.

If you are interested in applying for our 2024 cohort, please fill out the student interest form.
