Success in College Prep


At its core, American Preparatory Academy is a tuition-free college preparatory school focused on delivering the best education possible to students all over Utah and Nevada. 

Even though challenges in 2020 put a pause on classes, athletics, and graduation celebrations, our American Prep students accomplished lofty goals, served communities, and continued to pursue higher education. 

These are just some of the ways APA is succeeding in preparing our students for the future. 

  • US News & World Report ranked American Prep as the 9th Best High School program in Utah in 2020.
  • Our APA seniors received over $4.5 million dollars in scholarship awards in 2020. 
  • Over 90% of our seniors who graduate enroll in college programs.
  • Two of our West Valley students, Jazmin Miramontes and Joseph Anthony Torres, were the recipients of the 2020 Daniels Fund scholarship. This is a comprehensive four-year scholarship that will change the trajectory of these students' futures forever. Learn more about the Daniels Fund program here.
  • American Prep students qualified for the National Merit scholarship every year since 2015 with Semi-Finalists in 2015, 2018, and 2019 as well as Finalists in 2018 and 2020.
