Launch will prepare students to thrive in college and careers by providing a public education rooted in active learning experience and powerful character development.
Launch Expeditionary Learning Charter School was created to serve a singular purpose: To offer a world-class education to students and families living in Bed-Stuy, Crown Heights and surrounding communities. The educational model by which we will offer this education is called Expeditionary Learning (EL). The Launch EL model is powerful for two reasons: First, because it makes education engaging for students by tying rigorous learning to what goes on in the real-world, not just what is in a textbook. Second, it focuses on developing high standards of character through providing a highly structured environment that provides space for building strong, meaningful relationships. These are the priorities contained in the Launch mission and they reflect the outcomes of a world-class education. We focus on purposeful and rigorous instruction and strong character. We produce smart people and good people. That is the education that students will receive at Launch and the standards to which we hold ourselves every day.
