Update for April 15, 2019

I'd like to invite all of you to attend our last showcase evening of the school year Tuesday, April 16, at 6 p.m. Our instructors and students are ready to show you their finest work. While you're here, you can learn about all of the programs offered to full-time and part-time students who attend King Tech, and sign up for next year. We'll have staff on hand to assist with the online application process for incoming juniors and seniors.

Tuesday's showcase happens to fall exactly one month before the first graduating class of King Tech High School walks across the stage at Wendy Williamson Auditorium. We invite you to join us on the UAA campus on Thursday, May 16 at 11:30 am to celebrate their accomplishments.
Our scholarship reception is set for April 24 at 2 p.m. If your child was one of the lucky scholarship recipients, please plan to join us for a short recognition and light refreshments that afternoon.
The staff at King Tech have made starting a new school look easy, and graduation is the culmination of all of the hard work this exceptional team has put in this year. Until then, committees are still hard at work looking at all of the systems we use to educate our students and providing feedback on what works and what might work better. I welcome your thoughts on how we did this year.
