- American Boys Prep enables parents to maintain a degree of influence and control over academic content similar to that which they would exert in a homeschooling environment but without the need to deliver the education themselves.
- At only $6,750 per year (5th and 6th grade), ABPA is highly affordable when compared with most private schools and when considering the opportunity cost of homeschooling.
- At American Boys Prep, your son will have opportunities to develop friendships and practice his social skills while personally interacting with other boys. However, since ABPA is a micro-school (maximum 12 students) your family's risk of exposure to COVID or any other communicable disease is greatly reduced.

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.
