The Launch helps young men see their high school years not simply as a stepping stone toward college but as critically formative for their entire life.

It encourages them to start developing now the skills and attitudes they will need for future life challenges:

  • Professional work
  • Friendship with family, colleagues, neighbors, and God
  • Marriage and fatherhood
  • Responsible citizenship.
Through a combination of classes, career presentations, and one-on-one mentoring, it teaches them to be men of character who are ready for responsibility.

Please note: All Launch seminars for the 2020-21 academic year will be offered in-person (with a remote option), however, to allow for more social distancing and to better accommodate remote participants, they will take place at Northridge Preparatory School (8320 Ballard Rd, Niles, IL 60714).  Click here for more information about Sauganash’s COVID guidelines.
