Skyrocket early learning with Elementary Launchpad classes.

Home » Courses » Elementary Launchpad

Elementary Launchpad courses empower students in grades K-5, regardless of their location, to reach higher levels of achievement and develop a passion for learning. Our program tailors instruction to your student’s specific grade level and individual needs.

Here’s how it works: Students spend 20-30 minutes per day engaging with iStation, an interactive platform featuring personalized lessons. An IDLA teacher monitors their progress and conducts real-time group sessions, spending up to five hours per week providing additional instruction aligned with the skills they have practiced independently. These sessions not only address students’ needs but also allow time for reading, interacting with teachers, and connecting with peers.

Launchpad classes are facilitated by Idaho certified elementary teachers and overseen by the IDLA principal. Our program’s success relies on a strong partnership with local school staff.

To participate in Launchpad, districts must ensure that students have access to a PC, Macbook, or Chromebook. Phones and tablets are not compatible with the program.
