Our Approach

Whole Person Support

Basic Needs and Additional Resources

You are not alone! Everyone needs help sometimes, and when Launchpoint meets your whole needs, we create the ideal learning environment for you. We can connect you to a network of support organizations that will help you and your family navigate common issues with housing, financial instability, and more.

Do you need food assistance? Thanks to a partnership with the Central Texas Food Bank, we have an on-site food pantry (Norwood) available to all students regardless of campus.

  • Career Education Services

    We like to say “Diploma Plus” around here. In addition to earning your diploma, we help you develop a career plan and offer opportunities to gain real-world work experience or simultaneous training for professional certifications — all of which help you get the job you want.

  • Life Coaching

    As a student at Launchpoint, you'll have your very own life coach who will be your go-to support. Your life coach will connect with you regularly and help you set your career, academic, and personal goals during individual and group coaching sessions. Life coaches are committed to helping you succeed and will work with you to overcome any obstacles along the way.

  • Mental Health Counseling

    Taking care of your mental health is as important as taking care of your physical health. Counseling is an effective way to manage instances of stress, anxiety, and more.

    As an enrolled Launchpoint student, you may receive free, confidential therapy through the counseling team at Launchpoint. The team consists of a licensed clinical social worker and master's level counseling interns from the Steve Hicks School of Social Work at the University of Texas.

  • Transportation Assistance

    You have to show up, right? Launchpoint offers free, monthly bus passes to help you get to and from your campus for classes. We also have options for transportation to and from school special events.


The Launchpoint Exploration Center is an early learning development center offering on-site childcare services (Norwood) to children up to age 5 of Launchpoint student parents.* The Texas Rising Star 4-Star Provider and Success By 6/Austin ISD Collaboration Partner instructs a pre-K curriculum to ensure kindergarten-readiness.

Special Programs

Launchpoint Special Programs ensure you have access to special school programs in compliance with applicable state and federal laws. Special programs include special education services, Section 504 services, and English as a second language.

English as a Second Language

Launchpoint offers English as a second language to support English learners' language development in understanding, speaking, reading, and writing English in compliance with federal and state regulations. The Norwood campus offers a yearlong ESL academy for beginning and intermediate students. The Language Academy is an intensive program designed to provide targeted English language and content instruction in a supportive environment.

Pregnancy-Related Services

During pregnancy and after delivery, you are eligible for instructional support services to stay on track in your academic courses. Services are provided when you are pregnant and attending classes on a campus, confined to home due to medical complications, and confined during the six-week postpartum period.

Section 504

The Rehabilitation Act of 1973, reauthorized in 2008, commonly referred to as Section 504, is a non-discrimination statute enacted by the United States Congress. The purpose of the act is to prohibit discrimination and ensure students with disabilities have educational opportunities and benefits equal to those provided to other students. An eligible student under Section 504 is a student who has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits them in a major life activity, such as learning, self-care, walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, reading, concentrating, breathing, working, and performing manual tasks.

Special Education

Special education services provide specially designed instruction to meet the unique needs of qualifying students ages 18-22 in compliance with federal and state regulations. Special education services support the development of skills leading to future education and employment through individualized programs and services tailored to each student's unique needs.
