Alaska Native Cultural Charter School

The Alaska Native Cultural Charter School (ANCCS) was created to offer a holistic approach that combines Alaska Native language, culture, history, and traditional practices into an inquiry- and standards-based educational program for the students and families of Anchorage, Alaska. As a public school, ANCCS welcomes and serves all students who apply regardless of ethnicity, race, language or gender, and Alaska Native values provide a framework to develop students’ academic achievement and social/ emotional growth. ANCCS was the first Title I charter school in the state of Alaska, serving a nearly 100 percent economically disadvantaged and more than 50 percent Alaska Native student body.
