It is with great pleasure that we announce that American Preparatory Academy was recognized for the second consecutive year as a 2023 Salt Lake City Top Workplace. This prestigious acknowledgment is a testament to the vibrant and supportive community cultivated at American Prep.

The Top Workplaces recognition is determined solely through employee feedback, gathered and analyzed by Energage LLC in partnership with the Salt Lake Tribune. This process ensures that the results genuinely reflect the sentiments of our team members.

As the Life Balance Sponsor at the event, American Prep was privileged to share our commitment to helping our employees find success at home as well as at work.  Carolyn Sharette, our Executive Director, graciously received our award and addressed the group of over 650 attendees, sharing insightful reflections on the importance of life-balance for all employees with families. She emphasized how APA  has successfully implemented strategies to promote a harmonious balance between professional and personal life for our employees, providing child care services, preschool, and K-12 education, allowing parents and children to come to work and school together.  Her address challenged other businesses to consider offering these important Life Balance opportunities to their employee families.  

Our proactive approach to employee support extends to nurturing leadership with innovative programs specifically designed to advance career development for our employees.  These initiatives include training, licensing, and resources to ensure work-life balance is attainable for all parents.  

This moment of celebration would not be complete without expressing our heartfelt gratitude to our exceptional staff. Your unwavering commitment, hard work, and feedback have made American Preparatory Academy a Top Workplace for two consecutive years.
