American Preparatory Academy
Where every student belongs...

MESSAGE FROM OUR PRINCIPAL


Dear American Preparatory Academy Family:

Welcome to the new 2022-2023 academic year. I am pleased to begin my tenure as principal of the American Preparatory Academy (APA). I look forward to serving our entire community of students, parents, faculty, and staff. APA has proudly grown since its foundation 11 years ago, with the mission of offering students and parents peace of mind, by offering all-encompassing services all in one place. Our school community strives for academic success, while finding a balance with physical and mental health, and working on instituting values such as kindness and inclusiveness. These five items compose my vision of what APA is and should continue to be. I am committed to working vigorously to develop new tools and improve the school’s environment for our students, our parents, our faculty, and our staff. As principal, I look forward to dedicating my efforts to helping each student become the best possible version of him or herself.

Warm Regards,

Professor Andreina Wain
