• Three Different Enrollment Options to Choose From!

    The school will constitute a unique blend of educational options for families that will
    draw from Alaska Native and American Indian customs.

    Types of Education Programs: 

    In-Person Learning – K-12

    The educational program of Knik Charter School will focus on the individual student’s interests, strengths, and weaknesses, while honoring and respecting indigenous cultures throughout the educational process.

     Children and youth learn in different ways and at different rates, and once they become motivated, they learn whatever is required to accomplish their goals. 

    *Must reside in the MSBSD*  

    Blended Learning - K-12  

    A mixture of homeschool and in-person learning where students come on campus for a few selected courses, but are primarily correspondence students!
