Located on the A. Crawford Mosley High School campus in Lynn Haven, Florida, the Mosley Advanced Placement Program for Success (MAPPS) is a college preparatory program for students in ninth through twelfth grade.
A. Crawford Mosley High School has a well-established reputation for academic excellence. Seeking to provide our students with the best possible preparation for college, Mosley has continuously upgraded its honors program since the school’s opening in 1973. In 1983, Mosley began its highly successful relationship with the prestigious and internationally recognized Advanced Placement Program. Mosley has also developed a close relationship with neighboring Gulf Coast Community College through the Dual-Enrollment Program. In 1995, Mosley established a math/science magnet program on campus known as MACSM for students interested in pursuing careers in engineering, bio-medical fields, and computers. These students are provided both a specially designed curriculum and a support network of teachers, parents, counselors, and community professionals to ensure the best possible preparation for such demanding professions.
The overwhelming response by students and parents to MACSM prompted Mosley to redesign our college preparatory program along similar lines. By establishing the Mosley Advanced Placement Program for Success (MAPPS), we provide a nurturing environment for our college-bound students. Flexible curriculum choices allow students to develop personal strengths while also meeting state scholarship as well as diploma requirements. Over the past decade, research has shown that college students who participated in the Advanced Placement Program in high school outperform their peers in college. Because Mosley has been the leader among district high schools in AP examination results since the introduction of the program into Bay County in the early 1980’s, MAPPS is founded on a strong record of academic performance.
Furthermore, MAPPS believes that a student’s future success should not be strictly defined by such commendable academic success. The college preparatory program at Mosley provides an environment which seeks to develop the total person; therefore, MAPPS promotes student involvement in the performing arts, athletics, and voluntary service to the community. Our guidance counselors, faculty advisors, and program coordinators encourage student participation in a wide variety of activities that prepare students not just for college, but for life.
Since 1975, Mosley has sent forth its graduates to embrace their future. As our college preparatory program alumni continue their education at many of the finest colleges and universities, one constant theme emerges when they return to their alma mater,
“Thank you for preparing us so well!”
