• North Valley Post Secondary Counseling and Support

    The college-going culture present in every Mapleton high school is supported in part by the work of Mapleton's Post Secondary Options Coaches. Post Secondary Options Coaches work with students from the first day of their freshman year to the day they receive their diploma, providing the tools students need to apply to the colleges and universities of their choice and access to the scholarships and resources needed to get there.

    Graduation 

    A total of 22 credits, 40 hours of volunteering, a sophomore project, financial literacy, and a capstone project are required for graduation. A credit is defined as the amount of credit given for the successful completion of a course. Students must complete specific credits in twelve prescribed categories to meet Mapleton Public Schools graduation requirements. Successful completion means that the student obtained a passing grade for the course, which is the equivalent of a “C-” or better.
