Alaska Middle College allows juniors and seniors in high school to get a head start on their college education for free! As a senior in high school, I am not only saving money on college tuition but also receiving excellent advising and help from both college advisors and high school teachers/staff. Everyone is there to make sure you succeed and I feel well supported as I make my transition to college.

Alaska Middle School has been an excellent choice for my daughter, as I believe it will make the transition from high school to university a much smoother experience. The program is available for high school juniors and seniors, and is a combination of high school and college courses designed to meet high school graduation requirements, along with allowing the student to attend college classes on an actual university campus. My daughter has been "introduced" to college life a few years earlier than the average incoming college freshman. She has had to opportunity to experience what typical first time college students do ahead of time, and has learned to manage a college schedule, study time, socialization, and has more student autonomy that she did in high school. I truly appreciate the opportunity she has been given, in that transitioning into college from high school can often be a very difficult time for many students, and I feel that she has been well prepared ahead of time.
Alaska Middle College prepared me for what campus life will be as a Freshman. It was a great experience that I would encourage other to participate in. The classes, teachers, resources and students were all amazing. I learned a lot about myself and what study skills I was good at. I also learned where I needed Improvement for when I attend as a Freshman. I was able to attend all sporting events and join clubs on the campus. I used the math lab daily where other students helped me study and find answer to my questions. I enjoyed the safe feeling of the campus and it's overall esthetic. I met many new friends and again believe it was one of the best experiences I have had in education.
