Mercersburg’s Advanced Program for Global Studies (MAPS) is a two-year program for highly motivated students beginning in the upper-middler year (11th grade). Students must apply to be accepted into MAPS, which expands and goes beyond the existing Mercersburg curriculum. MAPS enables students to become creative and discerning thinkers, independent and self-directed learners, and compassionate and engaged global citizens. The cornerstone of MAPS is the SEARCH Project. MAPS seeks to encourage and inspire students to redefine their potential and performance, both academically and personally.
