North High School held a ribbon-cutting for their new Launch Studio on November 10, 2021.


Launch Studios focus on creating an engaging space for students to learn about careers directly from members of the Fox Cities business community.

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.

If your company would like to get involved with our Launch Studios, we encourage you to visit this page or call (920) 997-1399 ext. 2187.
