ANSEP™ has evolved into a longitudinal education model that provides a continuous string of components beginning with students in sixth grade and on through high school, into science and engineering undergraduate degree programs and through graduate school to the PhD.
The objective is to effect a systemic change in the hiring patterns of Indigenous Americans in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) by increasing the number of individuals on a career path to leadership in STEM fields.
ANSEP students at every level are successful at rates far exceeding national and state numbers.
- ANSEP Middle School students complete algebra 1 before graduating from eighth grade at a rate of 83%. The national average is 26%.
- 95% of ANSEP high school Acceleration Academy students advance one full level in math or science each summer.
- More than 70% of all ANSEP students who begin BS STEM degrees graduate.
There are now 1,200 middle school, high school, university students and alumni.
