Map Academy is an alternative charter high school founded on the belief that every student – no matter what their life circumstances – has unique strengths and the ability to succeed. Our students are survivors. Most have been forced to navigate challenges beyond their years. Here, they get the chance they deserve to overcome barriers and re-engage with their education. Map Academy is the alternative these students need to write the next chapter of their story – one that is not defined by challenges, but instead by what it takes to succeed in spite of them. Students leave Map with plans for the future and the skills to achieve them.

We believe:

  • There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all education.
  • School should not ignore the realities in students’ lives that may hold them back from academic progress.
  • All students can succeed with the right resources and support, even those who have struggled in the past.
  • Diversity and inclusion are the power that drives innovation and are critical elements of our community.
  • Learning does not start and stop when bells ring.
  • All students can achieve at high levels and should be held to high standards.
  • School is about learning, exploring, and achieving, not ranking, complying, and competing.
