About Anchor Points Academy

  • Anchor Points Academy (APA) serves the needs of students who are not able to attend their public middle school or high school in Queen Anne’s County.  APA has a small teacher to student ratio, which provides additional academic support to students who are not meeting success in a traditional classroom setting. Students who are at risk for academic failure, causing disruption in their home school, excessive absenteeism, school anxiety, or returning to public school after placement in a juvenile facility may be eligible for enrollment at APA.  Recommendations for admission into APA are made by the student’s current school administrator, the school’s student support team, or the Superintendent of Queen Anne’s County schools.
