Alaska Middle College School opens on Chugiak-Eagle River Campus

New for the 2012–13 school year is the Alaska Middle College School. Located on UAA’s Chugiak-Eagle River Campus, the school is an early college program that will allow junior and senior Matanuska-Susitna Borough School District (MSBSD) students to earn credits toward a UAA Associate of Arts degree while completing their high school diploma. Drawn from the five pre-existing high schools in the Mat-Su Valley, students will take classes that satisfy both UAA general education and MSBSD high school diploma requirements.This new choice for Mat-Su students will help them get college-ready and will also shorten the time and money it typically takes a student to get a degree.
