These may include banquets, outdoor recreation, informal game nights, service projects, dorm outings, community programs, and bi-annual state-wide conferences. Our family atmosphere is sure to make you feel welcome in the far north!


 The Alaska Life

We firmly believe your experience outside the classroom contributes to your overall enrichment.  Students are encouraged to explore the surounding area and embrace all Alaska has to offer!

Strategically located in the heart of Palmer, our campus and dorms enable you to readily access incredible year-round opportunities. Within walking distance are community bike paths, local hikes, coffee shops, fast food, and grocery stores.

Alaska is ideal for outdoor enthusiasts, and the Palmer area hosts world-class recreational adventures. Fall activities may include fishing, hunting, hiking, and canoeing. In the winter months, try snowboarding, skiing, skating or snowshoeing. Community events include the Iditarod, the Alaska State Fair, concerts, craft fairs, high school sports, and much more.
