Launch & MOCAP
Missouri Course Access and Virtual School Program (MOCAP) was established in 2007 as the state’s online school. It was previously known as Missouri Virtual Instruction Program (MOVIP). It allows students to take courses from any Internet-connected computer, available 24-hours a day, seven days a week. MOCAP's mission is to offer Missouri students equal access to a wide range of high-quality courses and interactive online learning that is neither time nor place dependent.
Local school districts and charter schools may choose a preferred online provider. Launch is operated and overseen by Springfield Public Schools, and it is the preferred online provider for hundreds of districts statewide. Launch currently offers nearly 500 courses with full programming available for students in grades K-12. All Launch courses are designed by Missouri teachers and aligned to Missouri Learning Standards, and a formal review process is built into the Launch course development process to ensure high quality and rigor. Students wishing to take advantage of online learning opportunities may do so through Launch and may enroll at their home building.
