Is a charter school right for your student?


School choice is vital to your family, but choosing the right school can be tricky. Evaluating a school is essential before enrolling your students. You may be wondering if your school is traditional or year-round. Do they follow a STEM, Classical, or project-based curriculum? What is the student: teacher ratio per class? Will my child feel welcome?

We've created the APA Fast Facts info below to make it as easy as possible to determine if American Prep is an excellent fit for your family.
