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 Mat-Su Valley.
Student outings, all-school retreats, and banquets all add to the excitement of life at ABC. A Student Wives’ Fellowship, Bible studies, prayer times, craft projects, and family activities are planned to support student families.
Within walking distance of the ABC campus in Palmer are community bike paths, coffee shops, and grocery stores. Alaska is ideal for outdoor enthusiasts, and the Palmer area hosts world-class recreational opportunities. Fall activities may include fishing, hunting, hiking, and canoeing. In the winter months, try snowboarding, skating or snowshoeing. Community events include the Iditarod sled dog race, the Alaska State Fair, concerts, craft fairs, high school sports, and more.
