A word from the president

Alaska Native Charter School beats odds

Partnerships, dedicated staff and volunteers create success

The Alaska Native Cultural Charter School got off to a rough start in 2008 with lower than expected enrollment, a facility still undergoing renovations and other bumps in its untraveled road. But it's been making up for it ever since by never wavering from its mission: "Building student excellence through traditional cultural learning."
