Military families will find a warm welcome at Frontier Charter School
Frontier’s APC* chairman (US Air Force), principal (US Army) and business manager (US Army) are veterans with a great understanding of what active duty life is like and have an enormous appreciation for those in uniform!
Recognizing that a move to a new duty station is a big deal in the life of a military family, we are here to help with making your transition to Alaska go more smoothly:
- We work with the education liaison office at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson (JBER).
- We connect new-to-Anchorage families with local homeschool resources and educational vendors. This is especially important for military families who are new to the community.
- We provide a curriculum lending library so students can get started as soon as they arrive, without waiting for items to be shipped to Alaska.
- We provide year-round support to homeschool households. Students who move to Alaska at various times of the year can enroll at Frontier and get started right away.
A hallmark of homeschooling with Frontier is educational flexibility. We provide a student with the flexibility to learn almost anywhere: at home, at a library, on a trip to visit family in the Lower 48, or while on vacation, and not fall behind in their schoolwork.
To better support our families, Frontier established a homeschool service center in close proximity to JBER, Chugiak, and Eagle River. The location of this branch office is 16707 Coronado Road, Eagle River, AK 99577.
