MAPCS will take on 1-2 founding groups per year for a 12-month mentorship cohort designed to provide additional resources and institutional knowledge for promising founders in designing their proposed schools. Cohort members will meet monthly with staff, be provided with a read and review of their application, and MAPCS will conduct a mock interview with their founding group.
Applications for the Mentorship Cohort are now being accepted. To be considered for this round, applications are due by April 19, 2019.
Groups must have an established group history and have the ability to demonstrate a strong founding group prior to submitting an application. Promising founding groups that have submitted an application to a school district and been denied will also be eligible.

Educational Needs of the Target Student Population
Student Academic and Non-Academic Goals
Academic and Business Leader Bios
Applicants must also include:
Contact Name, Phone and email
Name of Founding Group/School Name
