We are looking forward to working in partnership with you to live the mission to “inspire and empower students … to become future community leaders.” In addition to our rigorous middle school program, Centers of Excellence and our enrichment program, which have historically and traditionally been a part of our success, we are rolling out an Honor Code and Core Values to punctuate our commitment to educating the whole child. Rolling out these two elements will enable our students to be and see our mission in action. Like many cultures throughout history and around the world, codes of honor and conduct transcend the duties and responsibilities of citizens. Once learned they become part of the fabric of a culture and people who adhere to them become self-regulating – LEADERS.

The Core Values are action words that speak to the daily educational experience which transcends middle school. Each member of the community is a leader; thus, each member of the APT community is expected to demonstrate and actively be:
Empowering our students to lead is made possible through the support of our incredible community that believes in our students and our mission. On behalf of our students, graduates, families, staff, faculty and trustees — thank you for helping us guide our youth to their limitless potential.
