2016 – 2017 School Uniform Information
We will be continuing with Pro-Prints for the 2016-2017 for our official school uniform.  You can order online here: http://stores.inksoft.com/APA_Uniforms.  If you would like your cadet to try on the uniforms before purchasing, we now have sizing runs available at 29th St.  You can come try on clothing between 9am – 12pm and 1pm – 3pm Monday – Friday or by scheduling an appointment with Commandant Barker.  Sizing runs will also be available during registration on Monday, July 25, and Tuesday, July 26, as well as throughout the year.


Introducing the First Annual – APA K-12 Uniform Swap & Shop
Families are invited to donate gently used school uniforms and spirit wear to be distributed to students in need.

Families may also register with Commandant Barker to set up a small booth to sell or swap their gently used school uniforms with other families rummage sale-style.  No other products may be sold during this time, and families assume all responsibility for pricing and merchandise.


APA K-12 Uniform Swap & Shop Dates
Families in need of uniforms can stop by and browse our selection of gently used donations on the dates below.  There will be a limit of 2 bottoms and 3 shirts per student enrolled.  Families can also shop or swap at the booths for gently used uniforms with other families.  Sizing runs of new uniforms will be available for fittings, but brand-new uniforms must be ordered online through Pro-Prints http://stores.inksoft.com/APA_Uniforms.

APA goes paperless
APA will no longer be printing out hard copies of reports cards for grades 6-12.  Report cards will be available on Skyward within 1 week after close of the grading period.   Students/parents may go to Skyward to view and print report cards if they wish (See below how to obtain Skyward login if you do not have one.)   If parents want a paper copy of the report card and do not have internet access, they need to send Capt. Thompson  (rthompson@goapa.org)  in writing their request stating why they need a copy and we will print and send one home with their child.


Online grade access for grades 1-12 is now available   If you wish to access your child’s grades, discipline, lunch/fee balance, etc., please do the following.   We will process the information as quickly as possible and get back with you.

We must verify your information before you will receive your logins.   Please email Capt. Thompson the following information for each child:
1.  Child’s name and grade
2.  Your relationship to child
3.  Child’s home address
4.  Main phone contact

Only those officially entered into our system as guardians will be allowed access.
