After a full and busy week of teaching at American Prep, our staff enjoyed a wonderful luncheon together this afternoon. BIG THANKS to our amazing parent volunteers that put this event together and a special SHOUT OUT and THANKS to the Song family of the Draper Cup Bop and Itto Sushi in Midvale for providing the amazing and delicious meal.
During one of our meetings this afternoon, we had a surprise visit from a singing quartet that serenaded one of our fabulous instructors, Ms. Hughes. It was an exciting moment that all of our instructors got to share on this special day. Congratulations to Ms. Hughes and all of our staff that got to enjoy this serenade.
Our teachers and instructors are enjoying all the decorations and food provided by our wonderful parents. Our staff work very hard providing a high quality liberal arts education for our students. Working hard gives them an appetite and they appreciate all the extra food and special decorations that our parents are providing this week.
As part of an American Prep tradition, our parents decorate our teachers doors as part of our staff appreciation week. This years theme is “The Magical Kingdom of APA”. Thank you to all of our wonderful parent volunteers that started their decorations today and will be working over the weekend transforming our school into a Magical Kingdom.

Our campus is K-12 and it was very exciting to have a homecoming basketball game to attend over at Draper 3. Our school’s mascot, Ace, showed up and was a big hit with the young students. He was also hanging out with Trent Sims, one of our Super Star Seniors. What an exciting game and event!
As part of our character development curriculum, our students get to learn about our state’s legislative process and visit the capitol to see it in action.

Come anytime during this time and we will get you set up on a table and you will learn lots about our legislative process and have some fun!
