Alaska EXCEL is a key component in supplementing CTE curriculum in rural Alaska school districts. Provided with our unique educational opportunities, students are able to experience career exploration starting in the 7th grade and can continue until the summer following high school graduation. Focusing on careers relevant to their regions, participants may explore jobs in health care, construction, heavy equipment operating, aviation, culinary arts, maritime, and more! Foundational sessions hone in on life skills, such as leadership and healthy living, all the while working on employability skills. Some of the other sessions, such as College Prep and Credit Recovery help students prepare for life and goals beyond high school.
