Austin Peace Academy is the best place for your child to develop morals in a safe and encouraging atmosphere. There is so much opportunity to create sincere relationships with peers and teachers. The school is truly an individualized experience without the “one-size-fits-all” approach of public education. As a recent graduate of Austin Peace Academy who will be attending university in the fall, I feel that APA successfully prepared me to enter a college setting. I would recommend this school to anyone!

I’ve attended APA for almost my whole life. I used to hate on APA, but in my senior year I realized that I will genuinely miss the school. Here’s why: 1) The teachers are amazing. They are very qualified, and put a unique Islamic spin on the curriculum, even in AP classes. They care about student growth, are passionate, and develop personal bonds with students. 2) Discussions, Duhur salah, interfaith dialogue, and morning duas strengthened my deen. In Islamic Studies class, my every question about Islam was answered convincingly. 3) A lack of resources encouraged me and other APA students to be creative leaders. I, for example, started APA’s robotics program. 4) APA feels like one big family. Students and teachers develop lasting and impactful friendships. 5) The various competitions we participate in, from Science Fair to MIST, helped me find myself. Overall, my time at APA has been amazing, and I cannot be more thankful for who I've become.
