All classes are limited to 10 students

“School can feel too rigid—too much of being in your head. The path of balance and enlightenment for a thriving life comes from choosing to improve yourself as you evolve. It is in the journey of life—the journey of evolving as experience happens. You may not know when the next thermal is coming to lift your wings, but know for certain, taking the leap is the way to begin. Break the chains. Learn to soar. Get outside of your head and fly. You are gaining altitude. You are reaching the sky. You are limitless.”

Launch Life Skills (LLS) empowers students to know who they are, what they stand for, what they are capable of, and how to go forth and build a meaningful life. LLS prepares youth to launch into the real world with great confidence and competence. 

LLS teaches life navigational skills for students to become self-sufficient, self-reliant, connected, balanced and confident in their abilities to manage their lives. LLS provides a fertile environment for personal growth, engaging discussions, collaborative problem-solving and building positive relationships with their peers. 

When students are exposed to new ways of thinking, feeling, being and doing, their views of the world and of themselves expand with new perspectives, pathways and possibilities. LLS teaches students how to navigate their lives so they will have the skills and competencies to build a well-balanced and thriving life when they launch into their emerging adulthood and the real world.
