Fully Accredited Private School

We are a Fully Accredited K to 12 School Attending all Students.
With professionals who offer a bilingual program of excellence.
We have joined our respective knowledge and expertise to create American Preparatory Academy

American Preparatory Academy is neurodiversity, inclusive school. This means that at this academy, we cater to students who might need reinforcement in specific academic areas or accommodation to fit their learning styles and abilities. We have three possible paths, mainstream education, or students in the self-contained classroom who receive additional reinforcement (students with a specific diagnosis such as ADHD, Autism Spectrum, and others).

The third path is a classroom that focuses on students whose cognitive abilities are lower and who perform in a self-contained classroom (cluster group), which provides more focus on life skills while developing and meeting the highest possible level of academic work (particularly in English and Maths) that students in this classroom are capable of. Also, the division between levels is not traditional either, students remain within their Elementary, Middle, or High School core groups. They are not necessarily divided by grade level. Instead, students are subdivided by class groups that adapt to aid them in performing in each class to the best of their abilities.
