The boarding school's superintendent calls the plan a "hostile takeover," but lawmakers have expressed strong interest in ANSEP's proposal to turn Mt. Edgecumbe into an accelerated program.

Alaska Native Science and Engineering Program

The Alaska Native Science and Engineering Program, or ANSEP, was awarded a $6 million grant through the passage of House Bill 278.  The program is using that money to offer eight additional Middle School Academies.

ANSEP works with the University of Alaska system to effect systemic change in the hiring patterns of Alaska Natives in science and engineering by placing students on a career path to leadership.  This starts by placing students beginning in sixth grade through high school in science and engineering undergraduate degree programs.
