UNIVERSITY SERVICES

LAUNCH believes in brining opportunity to students and their families. We understand every family is in a different stage of their journey and may not require our entire services for one reason or another. What originally started as three university guidance packages, LAUNCH is proud to expand our services to select a la carte options. You can view the options below and purchase online for an easier and less stressful experience.

 LAUNCH does not work for universities and thus, cannot guarantee admission to or financial aid from any school.

UNIVERSITY PACKAGES

LAUNCH provides three boutique, personalized university guidance packages for students seeking to attend university in America, the United Kingdom, Canada, and throughout Europe ranging in price from €2400 to €7800. These packages provide our families the best return on investment as each allows for unlimited communication with LAUNCH and a highly bespoke guidance plan. LAUNCH does not count hours and works extensively outside of meetings for students and their ambitions. This means meetings are used for important and valuable feedback, discussions, and in depth tasks creating more progress in less time for the student.

These packages aim to make the university application process organized (through our use of Cialfo), less stressful (through strategic mediation and project management), and tailored to a student's goals, values, and ambition (our values-based approach).

 

Each package has a set price point and automatically includes access to the LAUNCH client portal and online Facebook community, all written LAUNCH materials, and unlimited email and phone call communications. We specialize in expat/international families, third culture kids, and students with special athletic talents.

We offer all families a free, one-hour consultation to share our knowledge, learn more about your needs, and determine if we are a good fit for one another.
