According to a recent study, 60.8 percent of incoming University of Alaska students need remedial coursework. Students who graduate from the Alaska Native Science & Engineering Program’s new Acceleration High School (AAHS) in Palmer immediately begin taking college-level courses; most even graduate with enough credits equivalent to one full year of college.
For AAHS students, this means saving a full year of college tuition and a jumpstart on advanced degrees. By fall 2017, ANSEP will be accepting the second class of students to the Palmer Acceleration High School and welcoming the first class to the Anchorage Acceleration High School.
