Welcome to Mapleton Online!
Why an online Mapleton school?
As a district, we are motivated to re-envision the ways in which we meet the academic needs of every family in our community. To that end, we are pleased to introduce Mapleton Online, a free, K-12 online Mapleton school, and the latest addition to our robust menu of learning models.
Mapleton’s online school supports families choosing to continue their remote learning experience into the 2020-21 school year. Similar to what you have come to expect from all Mapleton schools, Mapleton Online is based on the following pillars of success – relationships, rigor, relevance, and results.
Students will have full access to participate in Athletics, Performing Arts, Air Force JROTC, as well as district events, including the Science Fair, Spelling Bee, and Art Show.

Mapleton Online Educational Philosophy:
Each Mapleton Online student begins with an academic and social plan tailored to their individual goals and needs. The creation of the plan is a collaborative process, including school leadership, staff, students, and families.
Strong Academic Foundation:
Regardless of academic or career goals, every student needs a solid foundation of skills and knowledge in order to be successful. Students will have extensive opportunities to acquire these essential components of learning.
Systems are everywhere. Systems are in everything from the water cycle to democracy to color theory to athletic training. As such, the ability to see and interact with systems is a critical tool in the 21st century. At Mapleton Online, students will learn to identify, interact with, and impact the systems in their lives.
As students grow in their core knowledge and systems literacy, they will have the opportunity to explore new horizons in learning. Project-Based Learning (PBL) is a teaching method in which students learn by actively engaging in real-world and personally meaningful projects.
