Job Description

Map Academy is recruiting exceptional educators who are:

  • outside-the-box, entrepreneurial thinkers drawn to the amazing opportunity to help us grow an innovative high school from the ground up.
  • passionate about working with youth who have been failed by traditional systems, and
  • compelled to disrupt the status quo in order to help all students thrive.
Map Academy--a unique public high school in Plymouth, Massachusetts--is founded on the belief that every student can succeed. In creating Map Academy, we put students at the center of every choice and designed a school flexible enough to meet students where they are when they enroll, and personalized enough to increase expectations as they develop the academic, personal, and social tools they need for success in high school and life after graduation.

Competency-based, student-centered, and trauma sensitive, Map Academy is a haven for disconnected and underserved students who have disengaged from their education. Student-centered academics, a highly supportive culture, and career development opportunities equip students with the knowledge, mindsets, and skills to meet the high standards necessary for postsecondary education and meaningful employment.

Visit our website--www.themapacademy.org-- for more information about the Map Academy model, support we have received, and our vision for the future.
