Improving academic outcomes and reducing cost for families and government

Providing Education Innovations Now and into the Future
ANSEP's goal is to provide an excellent education and a life of unlimited possibilities for every Alaskan.

ANSEP students can go from finishing eighth grade to a Bachelor’s degree in five years with Acceleration Academy!

  • ANSEP families can save $75,000 or more in college costs when their students attend an ANSEP full time Acceleration Academy high school. 
  • Starting the clock in ninth grade, the expected cost to local/state/federal government of a degree at the University of Alaska Anchorage is nearly $300,000 because only about one third of students attempting degrees succeed after 10 years.  
  • Using the same criteria with the ANSEP model, the cost is less than $100,000, remediation is eliminated, and the social cost of failure is reduced.
