MAPS: MAKING A DIFFERENCE
The MAPS Media Institute is committed to providing a rigorous, hands-on program designed to instill a lifelong passion for learning and to equip students with the skills and confidence for academic, social and professional success.
Our unique curriculum incorporates science, technology, engineering, the arts and math (STEAM) in all of our courses. Fostering creativity and building communication skills is part of what led to MAPS being honored as one of the “Top 50” after-school programs in the U.S. by the President’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities.
The program runs year round, five days a week. From September through May; our 32 weeks of instruction are divided into four 8 week sub-courses to allow students to participate in school activities and then return to MAPS. During the summer, MAPS offers a Monday through Friday 4 week course.
In addition to their proactive course work, students learn many essential life skills, among them: critical thinking, innovation, communication abilities, teamwork, problem-solving, leadership etc.
MAPS technology department, business center, and equipment are state-of-the art. We provide a supportive and safe environment located on our own campus in Hamilton, Montana. To learn about our free of charge courses, please visit our class pages:
