Launch Virtual Academy - September 17, 2021

End of Quarter 1 - into Fall Break!

This week we are closing our first quarter of the school year (Q1). Congratulations for completing your classes and keeping up with our quarter system pace.


Q2 Starts on Tuesday, October 5th.

During second quarter (Q2) you will start 3 new courses.


What if I did not complete my Q1 classes? -Keep Reading

Fall Credit Completion

Do you need more time to complete your Quarter 1 classes?

You can continue working during Fall Break on the classes that you did not finish. Concentrate on the class that you have the most progress. It is better to complete a full class than to get partial progress on several classes.


If you need help resetting a quiz, opening a test or meeting with a teacher, please complete this form starting Monday, September 20 and a teacher will assist you.


*Only APEX-based classes will be supported during Fall Break

Information About Closing Quarter 1 Classes


  • Students that did not complete a course(s), will receive a grade of "I" - which means "incomplete". This means that the student will continue working on completing this class(es) during Credit Completion Periods (Fall Break, Winter Break, and Spring Break or during Summer School)

When will I know my second Quarter (Q2) Classes?

We will communicate with you through email during the second week of Fall Break to let you know about your new classes.

Message for Seniors @Launch

Welcome Seniors – Class of 2022 to Launch Academy!!


This is going to a busy year for all of you; applying for colleges and universities, financial aid, deciding what career to pursue and planning for graduation. In order to support your future plans, the administration and counselors here at Launch Academy need to make some adjustments so college application and financial aid filing will be stress free for you and your family.


As you are aware, this is only Launch Academy’s second year. In order for Launch to be an official school recognized by colleges and universities, the school needs to receive its accreditation certification. We are in the process of doing that. We have already completed the initial steps and are waiting for the team visit and recommendations. Unfortunately, this takes time and though we expect Launch Academy to be fully accredited by the end of November, it will be at the same time as the college admissions filing period which ends November 30th.


It is our top priority that you are able to apply to colleges/universities without obstacles, expect email communication from us in the coming days with details on how you will complete college applications and financial aid filing.

You have great future ahead of you!
