We are exploring a number of potential options as locations for Map Academy. As we determine a permanent location for the school, we will do so in consideration of these key factors:
- First, we consider areas of density of our target student population.
- Second, because Map Academy’s model relies on partnerships with community-based organizations, we will look for opportunities for co-location in areas that make sense for this kind of arrangement.
- Third, maximizing public transit access is a priority for us, in order to ensure that Map Academy students and families have as few barriers to reaching the school as possible.
Our goal is to be located in North Plymouth with easy access to Quincy College at Plymouth, our postsecondary partner. The education campus currently proposed for North Plymouth is our ideal location, but it remains to be seen whether cost and timing considerations will allow for it.
