Head of School Letter I am proud to share Academy Prep Center of St. Petersburg’s Annual Report, which provides a financial summary of the 2014—2015 school year. Our donors and community partners have made it possible for us to reach the highest level of financial stability in years. We will continue to support our students and their academic goals to the fullest extent as our middle school program prepares them for high school and college and to be community leaders. One of Academy Prep’s defining characteristics is its strong community. Our diverse, knowledgeable, and qualified teachers are passionate about empowering students to reach their full potential. They inspire students to achieve their personal best and develop a lifelong appreciation of education. We believe that each student‘s success is essential to the school as a whole. Academy Prep’s philanthropic efforts are much the same. Every single gift matters to our success. Please know that every one of our students, teachers, and staff join me in offering our heartfelt gratitude for your support of Academy Prep Center of St. Petersburg. Gina Tanase Burkett Head of School

Our History Jeff and Joan Fortune had a dream. They noticed that the local workforce lacked well educated and motivated young adults and were determined to find a solution to a community concern. This challenge was noticeable in the inner city and especially in south St. Petersburg. After much research and a visit to an inspiring school in New York, the Fortunes found the solutions they had been seeking and created Academy Prep. The founding goal of Academy Prep, to create a learning environment for those who traditionally would not have opportunities for success educationally or would be ill-prepared to join the workforce, is still relevant today. “The aim is to move young people from The Joan Fortune Campus opened its doors in 1997. an almost predictable path toward Set amongst historic grand oak trees, the campus is school dropout and low paying jobs located on 22nd Avenue South in St. Petersburg's onto a road where college graduation and a productive life of leadership are “midtown." The school initially opened to boys in grades the most probable outcome.” 5 and 6 and added a new class each year until the campus held boys in grades 5 through 8. In the summer Tom Sansone, Chair, Academy Prep Foundation of 2000, the St. Petersburg campus opened to girls in grade 5. The campus now serves a full complement of boys and girls in grades 5 through 8.

Having just completed the 18th year of operation, the students are living testaments to the success of the program. They are growing in their academics, character and aspirations for the future. Although fewer than 50% of adults from their neighborhoods complete high school, in the past 8 years 100% of Academy Prep’s graduates are in high school or have graduated from high school. Academy Prep is not only committed to serve its current students but also to never lose sight of its graduates.

3 Pillars of an Academy Prep Education Rigorous College Preparatory Curriculum

Enriching Extracurricular Activities

Academy Prep students attend school up to eleven hours a day, six days a week, eleven months of the year.

The Enrichment program provides learning opportunities outside of the classroom for students to develop self-confidence and personal growth. APSP offers a variety of athletics and clubs as well as field trips and service learning projects. Students who enjoy athletics may choose from basketball, volleyball, cross country, golf, karate, and more. Yearbook, WEDU PBS News Hour, Chess, Junior Chefs and Interact are a few of the many clubs students may join. Throughout the year, each grade participates in community service projects and attends a monthly Saturday field trip.

Students who are working toward a 3.0 GPA attend a mandatory daily study hall to improve academic efficiency and master study skills. All students attend the eleventh month summer session, which runs through the month of June. Summer session includes academics in the morning and extracurricular activities each afternoon. This session serves as the final step of the admissions process for prospective 5th and 6th grade students.

Graduate Support Program The Graduate Support team provides high school and college preparation courses and counseling to help students and families effectively transition into high school and post-secondary institutions; includes preparation for entrance testing, admissions, financial aid, course selection and study skills. Academy Prep graduates and their families are provided with consistent guidance in developing an education plan through college to ensure the best career opportunities for their futures. The AP alumni network extends opportunities such as community service and extracurricular involvement, pre-college summer camps and training opportunities, internship and employment referrals, and social gatherings 4 and reunions.


Academic Highlights

Affirming the powerful and positive impact of an Academy Prep education, our incoming 5th graders, beginning their Academy Prep journeys in the fall, averaged two and a half years less than grade level in reading and two years less than grade level in math on nationally-normed standardized tests; our 8th graders graduated in the spring averaging one year greater than grade level in reading and two years greater than grade level in math!

Science Fair participants Gabrielle Preudhomme (6th grade), Joslyn Eliga (7th grade), and Imani Ross (8th grade) represented Academy Prep at the Pinellas County Regional Science Fair where each one of them placed in the top 3 of their age group with Imani earning first place overall.

Academy Prep Mission To inspire and empower students qualifying for need-based scholarships to become future community leaders through a rigorous middle school program coupled with ongoing graduate support. 

Amari Royal (8th grade) won first place in this year’s St. Petersburg Rotary Club’s annual Middle School Speech Contest. The 8th grade class participated in high school showcases held on our campus to learn about high school programs available, including private, boarding and magnet schools. Then, they held another showcase for underclassmen to teach them about the opportunities available after graduation.


Enrichment Program Academy Prep’s enrichment program complements the rigorous academic schedule to provide students the opportunities to develop new and different interests and pursue favorites. There are dozens of clubs and activities to choose from including chess, organic gardening, yoga, visual arts, community service, healthy cooking, piano, and more. Some of this year’s enrichment highlights include residents of Westminster Palms volunteering with our crafts activity group to knit hats for babies at the NICU at All Children’s Hospital, a first-place victory for our Chess Club, and a brand new STEM Lab gifted by EMC Corporation to expand the Robotics Club and curriculum. This year’s field trip destinations included an overnight camping trip with the Sierra Club, a day trip to Finance Park where 5th-graders learned how to create a budget, cheering the Tampa Bay Lightning at Amalie Arena, and participating in a cleanup with Tampa Bay Watch. The climax of this year for the 8th grade class was their trip to Washington, D.C.

Academy Prep Athletes Athletics are an integral piece of Academy Prep’s Enrichment Program. Thanks to Modern Business Associates, APSP’s Title Athletic sponsor, we offer a variety of competitive sports including basketball, flag football, baseball, karate, golf, tennis, soccer, volleyball and track and field. Academy Prep students compete against other private schools in the Tampa Bay area.

This school year brought several athletic victories throughout the year including the Girls Basketball Team finishing their season 11-0, the Girls Track Team winning the private school championship meet, and multiple Academy Prep students placing in the School of Survival Open Youth Karate Championship. The Boys Baseball Team and Boys Golf Team utilized teamwork strategies and personal goals and showed great improvement throughout their respective seasons. The success of this year’s Athletics program can be attributed to the leadership of the new Athletic Coordinator, Chris Blackwell, 2014 Tampa Bay Times Coach of the Year. 7


Graduate Support Program The third pillar of Academy Prep’s three-pillar academic model is the Graduate Support Program. In addition to encouraging/educating our students during their four years of middle school, we are committed to helping our graduates through their high school and college years and beyond. Graduates often volunteer on campus to show their gratitude for the support they received at AP and to give back to students like themselves. They understand the true impact of an Academy Prep education.

This endowment would cover the costs in perpetuity. $1,000,000+ Arts Endowment will allow Academy Prep to fund a robust performing and visual arts program in perpetuity. By drawing off the interest alone, we will be able to fund a salaried arts position, create many new arts programs and renovate our existing arts space, while purchasing necessary supplies each school year. $50,000 With this annual gift you will become a member of our “Circle of Guardians� ensuring Academy Prep students will continue to have the resources and opportunities available to become community leaders of tomorrow. $17,000 The extracurricular program at Academy Prep offers a variety of activities including Art, Chess, Drama, Golf, Interact Club, Yearbook, etc. This gift will make it possible to fund the extracurricular program for one class of boys and one class of girls for a full school year. $10,000 The 11th month program, which runs the month of June, includes academics in the mornings and extracurricular activities each afternoon.

2014 – 2015 Financial Summary Academy Prep operated on a budget of nearly $2 million for the 2014—2015 fiscal year. Because all students attend Academy Prep for free (with the exception of a $15 monthly activity fee), tuition is not a major source of income as it is for most private schools. Therefore, Academy Prep relies heavily on individuals, corporations, and foundations in the community for support. Working with our community, we raised more than $1.3 million last fiscal year for our students and programs. Step Up for Students also provides a substantial amount of income for the school, as financial eligibility is required for each student’s admission to Academy Prep. Step Up for Students, a scholarship offered for low income students, is funded by Florida corporations that receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit for their contributions.
