ACPA participates in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and School Breakfast Program (SBP), which are federally assisted meal programs that provide nutritionally balanced, low-cost or free lunches and breakfasts to children each school day.

All students may participate in the program, but must meet certain criteria to qualify for free meals, reduced price, or “paid” meals. Reduced breakfast is $.30 and lunch is $.40, and “paid” breakfast is $2.00 and lunch is $3.25.  To find out what category a student qualifies for please contact the school.

ACPA works with an approved NSLP caterer who brings in and serves the food to our students.  Menus are available at the beginning of every month and students sign-up for meals in their advisory groups.  They can also always make changes to their orders at the front office.  Menus are posted on our website and/or can be obtained at the front office as they become available.

Below is a copy of our Wellness Policy and the most recent assessment on the implementation of the Local Wellness Policy and the results are available in the Administrative Office and can be provided to the general public upon request.
