Home school programs in Alaska are very competitive. Frontier Charter School is a public Anchorage School District school offering full-time home-schooling families a custom designed education. Families can design academic programs with a curriculum of choice, based on the child’s learning style and interest. Children with special learning needs are helped through a psychological and special education consulting firm.
Approved by the State of Alaska of Education in 2003, Frontier Charter School came into existence to help homeschooling families achieve their goals in academics. It appeals to a wide range of economic backgrounds and the services are also designed to meet a wide range of needs. The school received accreditation by the Alaska Committee of the Northwest Accreditation Commission.
Families get to choose the course, books and all other materials, as long as the curriculum of choice meets the State Standards. An ASD diploma is available for students who take a specific course of study, although it is not mandatory. Frontier Charter has its own diploma that comes with higher flexibility of the course of study. Tutorials are also offered in various subjects and grades, taught by certified teachers.
Frontier offers live, interactive courses online. Parents get training in home-school education. The home-schooling enemies – monotony and isolation, are alleviated through academic competitions in the community, such as Battle of the Science Fair, Geography Bee, Spelling Bee, and a project for the Learning Talent Fair. Students can participate in ASAA activities in their neighborhood: music, drama, sports, and other programs.
