What to Expect
The student experience at Map Academy is not like your old high school. We put an emphasis on forming personal relationships between our staff and each student. And we back up our focus on individualized learning with the technology that makes it possible.
The Map Student Tracker
Built into the Map Academy model is flexibility with time and place, utilizing a school-issued laptop and online Tracker to interact with instructors, access class material, and track progress. All students are expected to achieve specific standards and complete specific work, but these can be achieved at varying paces based on the students’ needs and abilities.
Our commitment to competency-based, student-centered learning is demonstrated by the tailored nature of each student’s day, making the concept of a “typical day” a misnomer at Map Academy. Each student’s schedule is responsive to their passions and goals, barriers to success, current learning targets and ability to demonstrate competency in a given subject area.
To provide academic and wraparound support for students juggling significant responsibilities in addition to school, we also offer an Evening Studio option Monday through Thursday (excluding holidays and school vacations) from 4:00 to 7:00pm.
