About our school:

The Anchorage Vocational Academic Institute of Learning is an alternative high school program devoted to students who have dropped out of traditional schools. The school's purpose is well matched with the definition of the word “avail,” which means “to be of use or help.” AVAIL is designed to help students return to the educational system and obtain skills for employment with an emphasis on earning a high school diploma.


Ages: 16–19  |  Number of students: 65
