I've been truly fortunate to have worked with the AAPLE seniors in AP US Government and Politics. The atmosphere is one that uniquely promotes students to develop into the leaders of the future. The cohort is similar to a close sports team in how connected they become to their peers and support each other both personally and academically. The leadership excursions provide extraordinary opportunities for learning that are sure to influence the students (and sometimes myself!) for years to come.

I think what's so amazing about AAPLE even after the rigorous academics, community service, and unique leadership opportunities is the tremendous sense of family. I wouldn't have been able to accomplish what I have academically and athletically without the support of my AAPLE class.

The AAPLE Academy has provided amazing opportunities that I would not have had otherwise. From attending two leadership conferences to the opportunity to see different colleges in California and on the East Coast, I have been offered incredible experiences that prepare me for college. I really appreciate my personal relationship with my counselors who have taken the time to connect with me and understand my academic and personal goals and needs. My cohort class has become close with each other and I look forward to the time I spend with my motivated and intelligent peers. Every day I am thankful to be a student in the AAPLE Academy.

The academy provides a unique experience where students not only engage intensely with history, but also reflect on how to learn from the lessons of the past and imagine the possibilities of the future. The integration of leadership allows the students to connect at a deeper level with their learning and apply it practically to finding avenues to improve their community.

As the parents of a freshman in the AAPLE Academy, we can say that the friendships, academic challenge, leadership and expertise of the academy has given our son an amazing transition into high school and he immediately realized that he was a part of something extraordinary.
