Early College Program

Did you know that Family Partnership Charter School students have been taking university level classes at UAA and APU since 2012? FPCS will pay tuition (through your student allotment) for students in grades 9-12 that qualify to register for 100 level or higher courses.


One of the major advantages of our school is the flexibility in selecting courses. FPCS students have the ability to take single class enrollments at their zoned high school, attend KCC, UAA, APU, take classes online, attend a small group class taught by ASD teachers and earn credits via parent taught curriculum. Additionally each of our students receives individually tailored academic support from a sponsor teacher who partners with parents to ensure the best possible educational experience Anchorage has to offer.


Another advantage of FPCS's Early College Program is that Family Partnership students can access the complete spectrum of courses taught by full, assistant, associate, as well as adjunct professors. Our students also attend classes with college students right on UAA's campus.


Taking college classes while in high school enables students to receive a quality education and reduce the amount of time it takes to earn a college degree or certificate. Dual enrolled students may enroll in college credit courses and use these courses for high school graduation credit as well as college credit.  


TUITION ASSISTANCE through FPCS student allotments

 High School students enrolled in Family Partnership Charter School are provided a state funded allotment ($4,000 for 2017-18). Students may use their allotments to pay for tuition, books, and some fees at post secondary institutions.
