small relational

The single greatest predictor of a student's success is the amount of time they spend with a master educator. At Launch we have a 10 to 1 student to educator ratio to ensure all students have quality time with exceptional educators. Our environments are designed to build caring, supportive, and trusting relationships between students, teachers, mentors, and other support partners.

Authentic Relevant

Learning is a process of discovery, connection, and creation. At Launch, we design rigorous and enriching project-based learning based on our students' strengths and interests. We weave core knowledge and skills into applied learning that is personalized, strengths-based, and culturally relevant.

Whole CHild

We do not just teach the child, we care for the child. At Launch, we are committed to developing students' personal efficacy, positive identity, and social emotional strength. We weave social emotional learning, cultural identity development, and trauma informed approaches into all we do.

Whole Family

We do not just serve the student, we serve the family. At Launch, we are committed to close academic partnerships, wraparound family supports, and mobilizing families as education advocates.
