The Choice is Yours!

Perhaps you want to allow your students the opportunity to take core electives (i.e., Health and Personal Finance) in the summer. Or maybe you would like to allow your students to take any class they wish. Either way, the choice is yours. With Launch, you can choose to offer certain courses, or you can offer our complete catalog. In the case that you are offering certain core courses, we may even hire your teacher to teach your own students! (You need at least 20 students participating for this option to be considered, and you must reach out to Dr. Nichole Lemmon at  nichole@fueledbylaunch.com.) Considering your options? Flip to p. 9 to see Launch’s complete course catalog.

Enrichment Opportunities

How can you help students of all ages build on key skills in the summer months? Enroll them in Launch’s Summer Academies! Using a computer and adaptive software, Launch’s  Summer Academies meet every student at their current learning level to teach key skills through games and other interactive activities. Academies are offered to grades 1–12 in the subject areas of math, reading and computer coding. Each academy course comes with a teacher and provides the necessary summer enrichment needed for students to prepare for the coming school year.

In addition, Launch’s high school catalog offers many electives. One summer-only Launch offering is Hunter & Boater Safety, which teaches students the skills needed to become a responsible hunter and boater. Students must be 16 at the beginning of the course and will learn basic hunter techniques, outdoor safety tips and shooting skills. They will also obtain hunting and boating certifications.

PRO BUILDER'S TIP:
To get the most for your district’s dollars, begin offering credit recovery courses (CRCs) with the summer semester. All Launch CRC licenses are valid for three semesters— summer, fall and spring—so starting in summer provides the most usage time.
