Parents, do you need help
Maple Ridge University’s (MAPL) home schooling support program values a personal growth and liberal arts culture with creativity at the center of learning. MAPL's vision is to build a foundation for support, effort and excellence, while we help parents implement homeschooling for their child to "Think, Plan, Perform, and Evaluate”.
Our previous project completion was self-publishing of 8 children's books. Each can be purchased on Amazon.
MAPL Ridge is also affiliated with a charitable organization. The MAPL Ridge Scholarship supports male students graduating from high school to attend college in the STEM disciplines and STEAM disciplines. Dr. Pittman is a graduate of Coppin State University, College of Notre Dame, and University of Phoenix. Thanks to the Biden Administration, she is now debt-free and making a commitment to support male seniors attending a Baltimore City Public School identified through their merit and resilience recognitions. Dr. Pittman’s goal is for male seniors to not face school loan debt.
Thanks to her partnership with the CollegeBound Foundation, a Baltimore-based college access non-profit, scholarship funds are managed with no administrative fees and donations are 100% tax-deductible.
