The ANSEP Acceleration High School Program is a program within a school housed at Valley Pathways.  This program is a full day, full year, school based opportunity that will offer dual credit enrollment for MSBSD students at no cost.  The target population is students who will be in grades 8-10 during the 2016-17 school year.  This opportunity has been extended to grade 11 until seats are filled. 

Dual credit enrollment means that students have the opportunity to earn high school and college credits simultaneously providing a great acceleration opportunity for students and a post-secondary cost savings for parents.

The exciting opportunity will have limited seating available and does require an application. Applications are now being accepted for SPRING Semester 2017 Application Due Date December 9th due to the ANSEP Acceleration High School  1150 N France Road Palmer, AK 99645.  Please complete the following sections.

  Student application form

  Current Science and Math teacher recommendation

  Most recent school transcripts

              500-word essay on “How do you plan to contribute to the future of Alaska”


Due to the University Partnership at the heart of this opportunity there is an Accuplacer requirement.  Accuplacer is a college entrance exam and students are assigned courses based on their knowledge of mathematics and language arts. It is strongly recommended that students enroll in an Accuplacer Tutorial.  Please contact Darjon Gimm at 746-8494 or at for access to these important tutorials. Students are recommended to spend 2 weeks using the Accuplacer tutorial prior to testing.  Students who are active on tutorials prior to the test will receive a test fee waiver. 

Accuplacer Tests will be offered by the school district December 10th at the Palmer High Cyber Center at 2 separate times 10am or 1pm.  Students with complete applications will be contacted with registration information directly.
