Launch Academy was developed by ESM over a decade ago to help college-bound high school students prepare for the application process. The week-long residential camp at Lake Tahoe is part college prep camp, part leadership / entrepreneurship workshop, and part personal development experience. The week provides students with the tools necessary to be successful in finding and gaining admissions to the right-fit college and creating a path to achieve their life and career goals.
