Our passion is high-quality, virtual learning opportunities for all students.
How do you best serve students? By providing them with more opportunities. Rewind to 2012, when Springfield Public Schools (SPS) began writing its own online courses to serve its 25,000+ learners. They soon hired two full-time course developers and—with the help of curriculum instructors and highly certified teachers—they developed a course catalog of nearly 50 course options for Springfield Public Schools students.
Fast forward to today, and Launch has a catalog of nearly 500 courses and serves students from hundreds and hundreds of districts statewide. Day in and day out, our team members continue to work to focus on our purpose-driven mission: providing all Missouri students access to quality virtual education.
More than 20 percent of Launch’s team members have had their children enrolled in Launch courses.”
