Academy High School

A School of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM)

  • Welcome to Academy High School!

    At Academy High School, students develop powerful problem-solving and critical thinking skills through coursework that exposes them to challenging courses including engineering, biomedical sciences, computer sciences, and environmental studies. Students work to master core subjects with an emphasis on science, technology, math, and engineering. Students are encouraged to research, learn and apply new material through hands-on projects, activities, and problem-based learning. We believe that these courses are essential in preparing students to pursue post-secondary education.

  • COVID Dashboard

    The purpose of Mapleton's COVID-19 dashboard is to inform our community about our continued response to the pandemic by sharing reported confirmed cases, active cases, and cohort quarantines. The dashboard reflects information that has been reported to the district from staff and students and is updated daily. For updated county dashboards, please view Tri-County Health Department's Local COVID-19 Data Dashboards and COVID-19 Case/Testing Trends by School District Boundaries.
