Lex2 Launch is a districtwide acceleration program designed to serve the unique needs of state-identified gifted and talented students and other academically advanced learners through coursework that requires more complex understanding and application of academic content, while developing students’ critical thinking and reasoning skills.

Mission Statement
The mission of Lex2 Launch is to support gifted and talented learners in developing their potential by providing an accelerated learning opportunity with intellectual peers through rigorous understanding and application of core content material.

Rationale
Lex2 Launch uses curriculum acceleration to prepare students for eventual participation in dual-credit courses such as Early College and Advanced Placement courses.  While keeping students at their home school with their grade-level peers, providing a separate class or intensive programmatic services allows for matching the rigor and complexity of the curriculum with the readiness and motivation of the student.  Research has shown that accelerated learners outperform non-accelerated peers academically when compared longitudinally (Steenbergen & Moon, 2011).
