Anderson Preparatory Academy (APA) is a public charter school in Anderson, Indiana, United States, authorized by Ball State University. The school is a coeducational military-style academy for grades K-12.


Anderson Preparatory Academy started on August 4, 2008 with 240 students in grades 6 to 8 and added a grade each year after that, graduating its first senior class at the end of the 2012–2013 school year, when it had 950 students and was one of 38 charter schools sponsored by Ball State.[1] In the first year APA had visits from the mayor of Anderson and then congressman, now vice president Mike Pence.

In 2015 Jill Barker succeeded Robert Guillaume as CEO of the school.[2]
