Falcon Flight Center's pilots take passengers up in the skies for breathtaking views of Ann Arbor and sites such as Michigan Stadium or to teach aspiring pilots how to operate a plane. Students learn how to master takeoffs and landings while communicating with an operating control tower. They also have the chance to mingle with other aspiring pilots by participating in group study sessions or enjoying friendly hangar barbecues. The center also rents out its aircraft to pilots who don't have their own planes, and it equips patrons with aerial photography shots of their homes and businesses.

At Rock and Roll Prep School, students of all ages learn how to play instruments and have the opportunity to perform in front of a live audience. The staff of music industry veterans lead sessions divided by age. Toddlers tinker around with instruments in interactive 45-minute sessions, and older kids spend three hours a week practicing for their end of semester show at a local venue. Group sessions are supplemented by individual lessons, where staff teach the basics of a chosen instrument. Through the combination of these two styles of teaching, kids learn new musical skills, which help boost confidence and teach them how to read music or boxes of love letters from future fans.
