Families join the APL community for a myriad of reasons and the outcomes for their students are equally as diverse. Regardless of the path a student takes, our goal at APL is consistent: that it is the best bet for a high quality of life and it involves the student in the decision-making. 

We approach education differently, so our graduation data is a little different too. APL students enroll at various points in their K-12 journey, and they also transition to other programs at various points. We most often see these decisions being made after 5th and 8th grade, during those major school transition years, most often to because a student is ready for more or less support in their day. Our student success teams engage actively with families in that decision-making process to help weigh the pros and cons for their student.

APL high schoolers graduate with a state-recognized diploma. However, the best outcome for an APL student comes from our Pathways Program where they set a plan for their own future, that's exciting, realistic, and fulfilling for them.

APL students are 100% involved in planning for their futures

At APL, being different is the norm and my child has never felt more welcomed. They're not the quirky outsider anymore, because they're the quirky insider!
