MAPS Program Overview
The Moody Advanced Professional Studies program is a profession-centered approach to education, offering juniors and seniors application-based learning opportunities while earning course credits. The transformative skills acquired through this program equip students with critical competitive advantages as they prepare for post-secondary education and future professional careers.
The curriculum is augmented by frequent participation of industry guest speakers, real-world challenges and contemporary projects developed in collaboration with local businesses and universities. Some MAPS focus areas are co-taught by two teachers over two class periods, while others are comprised of a single course taught by one teacher over one period.
The MAPS Center and the Moody Innovation Institute is located on the third floor of the Northwest Addition of the Highland Park High School. Original funding for the program was made possible by a generous grant from The Moody Foundation.
