Middle-to-High School Transition

Transition to high school with confidence and creativity. Launch!, WMCAT’s new four-week, tuition-free program, supports rising 9th grade students as they prepare for the transition to high school through social-emotional learning activities and creative engagement in two studios: video production and digital animation.

Launch! runs from July 18 – August 11, Monday through Friday, from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Lunch will be provided. Bus passes are available for students to get to and from WMCAT for the program.

Applications received by June 8 from students entering Union High School will receive priority enrollment. All Grand Rapids Public Schools students entering 9th grade are eligible to apply.

If WMCAT receives your application by June 8, you will be notified of acceptance into the program by June 13. Students who submit applications after June 8 will be notified on a rolling basis.
