American Prep Secondary Schools Mission Statement
American Preparatory Academy Jr. High assists students in their efforts to become student scholars by providing an academically rigorous liberal arts program that prepares them for advanced study at the high school level.
Each program at American Prep is regularly evaluated in light of the school Mission Statement – will it promote academic achievement and/or virtuous character development? We invite all members of the American Prep community to assist in promoting and supporting the school’s mission. Feedback and input are always welcome as we work to refine our programs to better reflect our mission.
The APA mission statement will be posted in each classroom. Teachers will lead students in a discussion regarding the school mission each fall, and will refer to it as appropriate, and frequently enough that students will be well familiarized with the school’s purpose and will be able to connect the school mission to daily activities. Most importantly, staff members will model the school mission in their words and actions, demonstrating their commitment to and confidence in each child’s potential success in academics and in building good character.
