We are thrilled to announce the release of updates to the Minnesota Afterschool Accreditation Program (MAAP)!

As many of you may know, the Minnesota School-Age Care Alliance (MnSACA) owns and runs MAAP, a state-approved accreditation (quality improvement) process and certification for programs serving school-age youth.

Just as a quality program is one that is reflective and willing to improve, change and grow, MnSACA strives to follow the same expectations when it comes to the MAAP process, tools, Indicators of Quality, trainings and other supports. For the past several years, along with the MAAP Advisory Group and other stakeholders in the afterschool community, MnSACA has been working diligently to make updates to all elements of MAAP, taking an already outstanding tool of self-assessment and measuring quality, to something even more transparent, user-friendly, and well-rounded.

We invite you to learn more here about MAAP, the benefits of going through accreditation, and the updates that have been made.

Enrollment is now open for those wishing to begin the accreditation process this fall - we look forward to working with your program on your continuous quality improvement journey!

Enroll by September 30, 2019!


Join us for a MAAP Informational Session


We will be holding two FREE informational sessions in September for those new to MAAP who want to learn more, those who are familiar with MAAP and want to know more about the updates, and everyone in between. We will give a brief overview of the process and benefits, share our rationale for the updates that were made, and leave time for a Q&A.

Calling MAAP Coaches


Coaches play a crucial role in the accreditation process through observing program practices, providing feedback that guides programs toward improvement efforts, and supporting programs toward successful completion of their accreditation journey.

New this year, we are excited to offer a variety of professional development opportunities for those wishing to support programs going through MAAP accreditation, including some à la carte options.
