We're offering a choice of "in school classes" and "distance learning" with online "Google Hangouts" video classes or a combination of both.  Students and parents will have the opportunity to choose what works best for them in providing the maximum safety and convenience while advancing academically.

Guidance & Assessment Services

We'll help you determine the right program for your child.  Children learn at varying rates and it's not always dependent upon their age.  We make sure our students enjoy the learning process in a safe, secure, stimulating environment.  Homework is completed in school to facilitate learning and avoid conflicts at home.  Class schedules are flexible to meet the family's needs.

Ready for School

Whether average, advanced or special needs... students work at their own pace and level. In Preschool through High School we emphasize the "STEM" approach to core curriculum classes surpassing Federal and State guidelines.

COVID-19: School Update
We're currently providing the necessary day care and assistance to the children of essential workers.  In the interim we're doing "Google Hangouts" video classes and distance learning for all grades.

NOTE TO STUDENTS: With concern that the rising COVID-19 infections will lead to schools closing once again. We're going to get ahead of that possibility while we can with in-person classes 4 days a week Monday through Thursday 9:30AM-2:30PM and an online independent studies day on Friday's at 10:00AM. In order to maintain our workload class assignments will need to be completed on time. An outline and completion timeline will be distributed for each subject to insure that we keep up the pace. We'll also need to practice using Google Classroom and Hangouts in preparation for possible disruptions.

The Dept. of Education just published the Fall 2020 guidelines necessary for schools to reopen: student desks should be spaced 6' apart for social distancing, hallways should be one-way, and students should wear a mask when in groups of 6 or more. The guidelines were written for larger schools and they don't include small schools like ours. Even though we are exempt we're going to practice similar safety measures. Many schools will remain closed due to a lack of space. Some are considering a rotating 3 day school week or online classes until the Spring Semester.

These are unusual times and will definitely have a long term affect on us all but most hard hit will be the students unable to attend school. Our goal at this time is to reassure students that they're safe and secure at Apprende and will be given the assistance they need to move their education forward.

Summer Session - June 15th through August 14th.

Fall Semester 2020 will begin Monday, August 17th.  New student registration is now OPEN!
