The small size of ABC fosters nurturing relationships between faculty, staff and students. In the context of a warm and caring community, the specific intent of the college is to promote growth through personalized and individualized attention. We believe that your experience outside the classroom is equally important to your studies as you learn to be a part of the ABC community as well as the local community of the Copper River Valley.
ABC is a residential campus with dorms and family housing. A Student Wives’ Fellowship, Bible studies, prayer times, craft projects, and family activities are planned to support student families. Dorm outings, all-school retreats, and banquets all add to the excitement of living on campus at ABC.
The Murdock Campus Center features a climbing wall, fitness center and gymnasium. The campus also has an outdoor ultimate frisbee course. Alaska is ideal for outdoor enthusiasts: Fall activities may include fishing, hunting, hiking, and canoeing. In the winter months, try snowboarding, skating or snowshoeing. ABC maintains a cross-country ski trail; cross-country ski equipment and snowshoes are available at the college. Community events include the Copper Basin 300 sled dog race, craft fairs, high school sports, and more.
