All-Alaska Academy provides direct student services to secondary students throughout the state. Aligned with state standards and taught by highly effective instructors, the All-Alaska Academy improves student achievement through experiential learning activities.
Week-long sessions are based in Juneau where secondary students travel from around the state to explore and experience state government, job shadow in a field of interest. Students are accompanied by a district teacher/chaperone, and housed at the Juneau International Hostel. After an activity-filled day students are able to explore optional evening activities such as swimming, rock climbing, skating, movies or shopping.
Schools and school districts throughout Alaska are invited to apply for attendance at All-Alaska Academy sessions by submitting a Letter of Intent. AAA tuition of $850/student and $650/teacher/chaperone covers ground transportation, materials, instruction, field trips, meals and housing during Alaska Close Up and Career Connections sessions. Tuition does not cover travel to and from Juneau.
Alaska Close Up (9 – 12 grade), Junior Alaska Close Up (7 – 8 grade), and Government Internship (11 – 12 grade Alaska Close Up alumni)
These programs provide students with hands-on experience in Alaska's capitol to learn how the Legislative, Executive, and Judicial branches work together to govern our state. Students meet and work with their legislators on local community projects, study actual bills being discussed, observe legislative sessions and practice government in committee simulation and a mock legislative session. Students who have previously attended Alaska Close Up are eligible to return as Government Interns, where they job shadow in various government offices.
Career Connections (11th – 12th grade)
Career Connections provides students with real-world experience at a variety of work sites and offers job-shadowing and career exploration opportunities for secondary students. Students spend three or more days in a job-shadowing position that is related to their field of interest. The rest of the session is filled with classes in how to seek and retain a job, career exploration, workplace and educational field trips, resume-building and practicing mock interviews.
STUDENTS MAY EARN ONE UNIVERSITY CREDIT AND TEACHERS CAN EARN THREE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT CREDITS
