Working together with families in a partnership of teachers, staff and community members to provide an individualized learning environment that fosters high achievement in core and elective areas; preparing students for life-long success.

Early College Program

Did you know that Family Partnership Charter School students have been taking university level classes at UAA and APU since 2012? FPCS will pay tuition (through your student allotment) for students in grades 9-12 that qualify to register for 100 level or higher courses.

One of the major advantages of our school is the flexibility in selecting courses. FPCS students have the ability to take single class enrollments at their zoned high school, attend KCC, UAA, APU, take classes online, attend a small group class taught by ASD teachers, and earn credits via parent taught curriculum. Additionally, each of our students receives individually tailored academic support from a sponsor teacher who partners with parents to ensure the best possible educational experience Anchorage has to offer.

Another advantage of FPCS's Early College Program is that Family Partnership students can access the complete spectrum of courses taught by full, assistant, associate, as well as adjunct professors. Our students also attend classes with college students right on UAA's campus.

We hope you will help us get the word out about the amazing opportunities Family Partnership has to offer.
