  • I Know I Can Program

    I know I Can is a program aimed at 2nd graders and offered with the partnership of Mat-Su College, the University of Alaska, College Savings Plan, and the Alaska Commission on Post-Secondary Education.

    “I Know I Can” is an important tool to encourage children and their families to start thinking about college early in their school careers.

    The program helps open children’s minds to a multitude of options available to them.

    Alumni

    You can volunteer your time to inspire young minds about the importance of education. You will visit a Mat-Su Borough School District 2nd grade classroom, share their journey with education and choosing a career, then lead a short activity with the students.

    Grade School Teachers

    Would you like our  Alumni to visit your classroom and spark the imagination of your children? We provide an activity that will get them thinking about what they want to be when they grow up and how education can be beneficial to acheiving their future goals.

    If you would like to participate as an Alumni or have us visit your classroom, contact our Admissions Representative at 907.745.9799

    Kids2College Program

    The Kids2College program creates awareness of higher education while instilling the idea that going to college is an attainable goal. Students go through a short curriculum in their classroom where they explore different career options and learn the importance of education and setting goals for their future. Students finish the program with a visit to Mat-Su College where they meet with students, faculty, and staff; attend mini classes and have lunch.

    Previous classes include:

    • Art
    • Geology
    • Architectural Technology
    • Psychology
    • Agriculture
    • Music
    • German

    We are happy to partner with ACPE, the UA CSD, and Nela to bring this program to 5th graders in the Mat-Su Borough School District.

    Currently, we are doing a two year cycle with the participating grade school to familiarize the teachers and staff with the program.

    If you are interested in participating, please contact our Admissions Representative at 907.745.9799


    Choices

    Choices is a powerful, interactive seminar designed to help the Matanuska-Susitna Borough School District (MSBSD) 7th grade students realize they are their own future. Students participate in a variety of activities from time and money management, exploring career choices, and how self discipline and setting goals is the key to success.

    We are happy to serve as a guest presenter and be a resource for the MSBSD in their Choices program!
