Jack Babani Scholarship for Individual Achievement

ALVS will select scholarship recipients who exemplify academic achievement, unwavering persistence, and a commitment to overcoming obstacles. These students will also demonstrate the desire to challenge themselves to reach higher accomplishments both in life and academia, which is a core value of ALVS.
This scholarship will be awarded annually in the amount of $1,000 to two students attending our full-time high school who have completed one semester of study. Funds from this scholarship will be applied toward the student’s annual tuition at our full-time high school.

I cannot thank you enough for all your help. Your kind words had encouraged me a lot to do my best. These subjects were unfamiliar to me; and honestly, I was not confident that I could pull this through. But in the end I did. Importantly, I have learned a lot of things. For this, I would always be grateful to you.
Great teachers are few and far between. You are one of them!
Andrew truly enjoyed you as one of his Apex teachers. Thank you again and I look forward to having you as my daughter’s teacher.
Thanks to Apex learning for helping my daughter complete her high school requirements early. Her experience was great with a professional staff who answered our questions.
Thank you so much for all your help this past semester!! You have been a great teacher! I do not know yet who is my teacher for the new semester, but I really hope you are!!
