MAPS Mission


The Moody Advanced Professional Studies (MAPS) program (see current brochure) is a profession-centered approach to education, offering juniors and seniors unique learning experiences leveraging team projects and class presentations while earning course credits. The professional skills acquired through this program equip students with critical completive advantages as they prepare for post-secondary education and professional careers. The curriculum is augmented by the frequent participation of industry guest speakers, real-world challenges, and modern projects developed in collaboration with local businesses and universities. Some MAPS focus areas are co-taught by two teachers over two consecutive class periods, while others are comprised of a single course taught by one teacher. You can learn about each of our focus areas and our outstanding teachers on this page.


The application process for being admitted to a MAPS focus area begins in the late fall with tours and information sessions provided to students and their parents. Students interested in applying must complete the online application which will be posted later this fall.
