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
