Beyond Brick and Mortar Podcast: Map Academy on Healing and Holistic Student Supports

In this episode of TLA's "Beyond Brick and Mortar" podcast series, which features leaders of established virtual and hybrid learning programs from across the U.S. as they discuss what makes their programs a success – and what they had to learn along the way, we chat with Rachel Babcock, Co-Director and Co-Founder of Map Academy. Learn about their holistic and student-centered approach to education, designed to address the unique needs and life circumstances of students as an alternative high school. Their model weaves together collaborative and cooperative learning, student data, support structures, and crucial programs that help them develop their postsecondary and career readiness in order to attend to myriad aspects of their students’ learning experiences.
