APEX grades 7-9

The Achieve*Prepare*EXplore (APEX) Project an after-school program for students in grades 7-9.

The mission of APEX is to support the positive academic and social growth of students, and to foster aspirations for future college and career success. The District provides all students with a free snack and transportation near home at the end of APEX. APEX offers students an excellent after school experience, including tutoring and enrichment opportunities that support teaching and learning.

Goals of APEX

By participating in tutoring and enrichment opportunities students will improve their academic achievement to support future college and career plans and develop positive attitudes about school. Secondly, they will improve social competencies and develop life skills that will support achievement of future goals.

How to Get Involved with APEX

APEX is for students in grades 7-9 and must attend either Ernie Davis Academy or Broadway Academy.  Students must have a completed permission slip on file before they start APEX. Permission slips can be downloaded here or can be accessed in the main offices or Broadway Academy or Ernie Davis Academy. Permission slips must be completed and returned to the school main office or scanned/emailed to the site coordinators listed below.

Attendance for students is flexible—we have students who build their schedule around interest, academic success, sports, etc.
