Launching a Spike requires maturity, the ability to execute, and a significant investment of time. Our coaches can also help students, who are interested, in developing these capabilities. Our Spike Coaching program is 100% personalized, so the time it takes to complete a Spike depends on each student. On average, a 10th or 11th grader takes about 1 to 1.5 years to launch a fully developed, high-impact Spike. Oftentimes, younger students are still developing their interests as well as their ability to execute. These are two reasons why they take longer to build a Spike, and our program is one of the most efficient ways to grow these capabilities. An exceptionally driven, mature, and self-aware 11th grader or rising 12th grader, who can dedicate more time to Spike Coaching, may launch a Spike in under one year. We assess how long a student may take to build a Spike during our consultation process.
All students begin with a 12-week Starter Package, which consists of weekly coaching sessions to gain momentum and create a solid foundation for their Spike. Upon completion of the Starter Package, students can decide if they would like to continue coaching full-time (weekly sessions), part-time (one session every other week), flex (on-demand sessions), or temporarily pause coaching.
