It is a personal education. Class sizes are small and the interaction between student and teacher is great! There are many activities one can be involved in but due to the small number of students, one can be stretched over too much. On the other hand, the environment is is safe and respectful.

I love how structured APA is! I am able to learn without the distraction of others and if anyone steps out of line, it is dealt with right away. Also, I love all of the teachers! The teachers really care whether I succeed or not and make sure that I am getting the best out of my education!
Anderson Prearatory Academy (APA) is a fun yet serious environment filled with thoughtful and impowering staff members. APA also has a unique military, airforce influence and is centered around the cadet oath, “...I will not lie, cheat, or steal, or tolerate those who do...” APA has inspired me to become a leader, grow as a person, and has challenged me everyday to work towards my goals.
