The Map team is an impressive collection of education professionals with many years of experience working with young people who need something more than the traditional education system offers. Students frequently feel overwhelmed by life both in and out of school and disengaged from the learning experiences that they crave, yet are often targeted by inflexible policies and dated notions of “progress” and “achievement.”
These are the students—a growing number of students nationally—who most need our support: students whose struggle in and out of school make success a steep uphill climb. They need and deserve more. The founders of Map Academy have deep roots in Plymouth and are invested in creating a high-quality option to better serve these students.
