For those who are confident in their abilities to coach themselves, the I. L.A.U.N.C.H System will show them how to create a solid homeschool program of their own, on their own.
Each module presents the instruction in two different forms: short, bite-sized videos (average length is about 4 minutes) and a full downloadable transcript of all the videos instruction in the module. The instruction is the same in both forms, so whichever one you choose, you'll get all the information you need.
Each module is divided into lessons that are designed to move you systematically through the creation of your homeschool program. Lessons are comprised of multiple components, including video instruction, action steps (most of which are completed in your 20-page workbook, which you'll download in the first module), downloadable resources created specifically for the I. L.A.U.N.C.H. System, and links to other websites or resources that will assist you with that lesson.

Frequently Asked Questions
The L.A.U.N.C.H Your Own Homeschool Adventure Online Course includes ten self-paced modules. How long it takes to go through them depends on how much time you are able to devote to the course each day. Each module has multiple lessons, and most lessons include a video and action steps for you to complete. Some action steps can be completed fairly quickly, but others will take some time and mental energy to be done well. That being said, I estimate that the entire course can be completed in a month or less if worked on consistently. (Just remember you have lifetime access, so you are under no pressure to complete the program in a set amount of time.)
LA.U.N.C.H Your Own Homeschool Adventure is a self-contained, self-paced, self-coached program that is intended for those who want to "DIY" their homeschool launch. There is no coaching or one-on-one support included with the program (though technical support is provided through Teachable and we will fix any issues with the course content that you might find).
The benefits of working with a coach are significant, however. For those who want to level up their homeschooling before they even begin, we offer the Confident Homeschooler Program. The added accountability, wisdom, and guidance of a veteran homeschooler with an education degree and over a decade of homeschool experience provides another layer of support, knowledge, and insight that can make a huge difference in your first year and the years to come. To learn more about this program, please visit our Homeschool Coaching page.
If you purchase the online course and then later decide you would prefer to complete the program with one-one-one coaching, you can apply for the Confident Homeschooler Program here. If you are accepted into that program, then your course purchase price will be applied to the coaching program and you will need only pay the balance in order to access the coaching.
