LAUNCH is a Currey Ingram Academy postgraduate program. 
The program provides students with a transitional year between high school and a post-secondary education who may not be quite ready for a full and typical college experience. Through participation in experiential learning opportunities, academic coursework, and leadership development, students will be better prepared for success in a college or university environment. There also is an opportunity to participate in the Residential Life program on campus to further develop independent living skills.
