As Michael noted, there is apa.cls, but it needs apacite.bst or  
apacitex.bst to produce apa-like references (either can be used  
independently of apa.cls, although I recommend the combo: if you use  
apa.cls, you do not have to call apacite with \bibliogreaphystyle{},  
as it does that for you).  apa.cls produces virtually perfect APA  
documents in three modes: `jou': reproduces the journal output in  
amazing JEP:X fidelity, `doc' produces your document in a single- 
column format more useful for distributing to colleagues and co- 
authors for commenting and editing, and `man' format faithfully  
(well, better than anything else that I have seen) reproduces every  
flipping stupid APA rule you can imagine, and many you probably  
didn't even know for journal submission.  apacite sometimes, but  
rarely, requires some tweaking to get obscure referencing types to  
type-set correctly, but these are all well-documented in the manual.   
I have a template for apa.cls that sets out much of the format for  
you (read, you probably won't have to read the manual to use it  
successfully).  Just drop it in your TeXShop templates folder.  Write  
me if you are interested.  I don't let my students use anything else  
(and, in the bargain, they don't have to learn APA format: LaTeX  
takes care of that for them, as it should).
