To enhance the potential of students,
promote excellence in teaching, and
inspire innovation in education,
guided by strategic philanthropy.
To ensure that all students and their families throughout Sarasota County Schools can access resources and build meaningful relationships that will help them prepare for college, career, and life, we opened LaunchPad4U in 2020. Centrally located in the Rosemary District just north of downtown Sarasota, this community resource center and learning lab is a place where students can formulate a plan, teachers can convene to innovate education, and community partners can collaborate to create more opportunities for our young people.
