School Reviews

ABPA provides not only a very comprehensive academic program, but also by its very nature, offers critical life lessons every young adult should embrace. The students learn the importance of planning, responsibility and accountability by providing daily progress reports and learning plans to both the parents and Director. The self-guided study instills confidence and reduces stress by learning at their own pace, often times reviewing lessons to perfection! Many real-world application electives, like Intro to Accounting, Business Writing and Toastmasters Public Speaking, are offered as well to further distinguish ABPA as a cut-above the competition. The extended recreation/relaxation/fun (which encompasses everything from basketball to meditation to chess!) provides a refreshing change from the ordinary school day. My son flourishes in this environment and we believe ABPA is at the forefront of this alternative educational trend.
