Animo College Preparatory Academy Reviews

I have attended ACPA since freshman year. The school is very small and as a result students are able to form a deeper connection with the staff. Although the school is located in a "tough" neighborhood, i feel safe. I like that our school offers advisory courses that keep us up to date on colleges and social justice issues. I would like our school to offer a broader variety of electives and clubs that will allow us to explore or interests.

Animo college preparatory academy helped me out a lot. They put me in the right track to attend college. The staff are great, principal and counselors are so helpful.
Animo College Preparatory Academy really cares for all their students. It is noticeable that most of the teachers want their students to succeed. They stay extra hours to help their students out.
