My 6th grade daughter just started at APA and its been 4 weeks and I see a complete turn around in her where school and grades are concerned. She loves her school and I love that she is learning so much more because of the way they teach and I never fight with her over homework. She is also learning ...  Read more

APA is incredible! My son started kindergarten on a 3rd grade reading level and because of their ability-based groups, was able to keep learning at his own pace. It has been wonderful for my kids to be with different groups teachers and help them find not just one adult they feel comfortable with, ...  Read more

My son was placed on an IEP in 3rd grade in a public neighborhood school. I remember attending his first IEP meeting thinking it would be great if all students could be given the individual attention my son was getting. When we moved and began attending American Preparatory Academy, I was so impressed ...  Read more
