Launch Studio

Find Upcoming Launch Studio Events here.

The Launch Studio at Appleton North High School is an innovative venue for students, teachers, and parents to make real-world, face-to-face connections with business professionals representing high-demand careers in the New North. It’s intended to promote career awareness and exploration with high-impact experiences for high school students.

Launch Studios create an engaging space for students to learn about careers directly from members of the Fox Cities business community and help businesses build closer ties with future local talent. These connections will positively impact the talent shortages employers in our area are experiencing.

The first AASD Launch Studio opened in 2018 at Appleton East High School, then in 2019 at Appleton West, and Appleton North in 2021. These Launch Studios were made possible with grants from the Appleton Education Foundation and Guardian Life Insurance Company of America. Funding from local businesses has continued to support our Launch Studios.

Launch Studios host career panels, Q&As, and virtual tours that are all relevant to monthly focus topics.

Our high school Launch Studios are supported by Site Business Advisory Boards. These Boards are able to connect the classroom with the workplace through their connections with companies, organizations, and non-profits in the Fox Valley.
