These readings reflect some of the cautions and motivations we have considered in creating our curriculum and programming. Boarding schools have a complex history, especially in regards to Native students. Our place-based curriculum will encourage a cross-section of Alaskan youth to come together and build upon cultures.
The semester-long junior-year model will allow students access to our condensed leadership program before taking those skills back to their home schools.
Finally, we are committed and attentive to creating a safe and secure environment for our students to learn and build their skills toward achieving resiliency.
