March Builders Theme
I am a builder when I am willing to try and believe in myself.
“A person who has never made a mistake has never tried something new.”
- Albert Einstein
Our willingness to try is directly correlated to our ability to handle mistakes. Whenever engaging in a learning situation with anything new, it is inevitable that one will make a few mistakes. If we view mistakes as learning instead of failure, it can improve our willingness to try and boost our confidence. Confident people are not afraid of making a mistake or being corrected. Viewing mistakes as learning opportunities helps us get things correct and forms one of the foundations of the Classical Liberal Arts Education Model.

Coming to the School
To reduce exposure to our staff and families, we are no longer scheduling appointments to come into the school. All items will be distributed in a “drive through” method as outlined below. However, schools are an essential service, and parents should feel confident driving to the school to get necessary materials or packets.
Groups Materials Pick Up
Groups classes (Intensive Math, Reading, and/or Spelling) will begin this Friday. Some students did not take home their books and notebooks for groups. Others left personal items or books. We are delivering these materials as follows:
Tuesday March 31 3:00 pm to 8:00 pm – Please come get ALL materials on this day!
All materials will be delivered in a “drive through” line. Please do not park or come into the school, but follow the map below.
Packet Pick Up
If your student needs to pick up packets from the school, you will receive an email from the homeroom teacher with the date and time. All pick ups will happen behind the school in a “drive through” line. Teachers and instructors will stand outside to distribute packets while you stay in the car.

Emails are monitored
Parents, please monitor all communication that your students are having on the computer, including emails and group chats. We want you to know that we also have a program that monitors ALL communication, and the Academic team is alerted to anything that is troubling in the text that is sent out. This includes conversations between students.
If there are inappropriate conversations happening, you will receive a phone call from your Academic Director. Thank you so much for your help in helping our students learn proper online etiquette.
Home Learning Resources
We have developed a website page for Home Learning Resources:
We have canceled all our re-enrollment meetings due to the restrictions from COVID-19. We are creating an online meeting that parents will attend virtually – it is a short video, followed by a survey. Once the video and survey are ready, we will send the link and unique enrollment code for each student. After you complete the form for each student, they will be registered for next year.
If you want to transfer your student to a different American Prep campus, please complete this form: https://www.americanprep.org/enrollment/utah-application/ Use the code: Transfer2020
If you have a child that does not yet attend APA, but you want to enroll them for this coming school year, they will receive priority enrollment. This includes incoming kindergarten students. However, they get priority based on available seats, and we are filling up fast! Be sure to complete this form ASAP. Use the code Sibling2020
School Lunch Update
We are not serving school lunch during the dismissal due to COVID-19. You can find locations near you that serve free breakfast and lunch to children ages 1-18 by clicking here.
