Frontier Charter School is a very diverse program providing the bridge between homeschooled students and formal education. FCS provides qualified instructors and community resources including guidance to parents, books and supplies, online courses, small group classes, university-level classes, one-on-one tutoring, distance learning courses, classes offered by local vendors, and access to facilities as necessary. ASD area schools can also be utilized on a limited basis to facilitate the individualized education of ASD/Frontier students.
An important way Frontier is distinguished from other home school programs in Alaska is through the offering of Learning Profiles for students. This personalized selection of assessments, designed to discover a child's unique learning strengths and challenges, provides parents with a better understanding of how their child learns. Homeschool parents can then select the curriculum that best fits their child's learning style and keeps the child engaged. The Frontier Learning Profile supports our commitment to our mission of assisting parents "to help students take responsibility for their learning." Survey results from parents reveals that the Frontier Learning Profile has positively impacted the home learning environment, and, given parents a tool with which they can customize their required individual learning plans in a more meaningful way.
Free-Ed.Net does not tell you what your learning goals should be and how to achieve them. We simply supply some tools, insights, and opportunities for finding you own way--for experiencing exciting ventures of your choice or design, and engaging with the working world according to your own standards of achievement. So now you see why this site can seem so confusing at first. It is built to encourage individuality instead of conformity. It is a breeding ground for eagles, and not yet another nursery for worker ants.
Discover Your Passion. Like the love of your life, the passion for your work is a matter of heart and soul, not of mind. You don't find passion in a box, at a seminar, in a book, through aptitude tests, or even by way of most career counselors. True passion is found by exploring a world of unlimited variety and rich in potential. Free-Ed.Net is a good place to start.

FREE TO FRONTIER PARENTS: LET'S GO LEARN provides innovative online tools to drive long-term, measurable academic success for math and reading.
There are two assessments in the series: a math test and a reading test. The assessments typically take about 45 minutes per test. If you choose to have your student participate in this assessment, an extra $300 will be added to your student’s allotment. To receive the additional allotment, students take the exam three times throughout the year. The first assessment is completed by September 15, the second by December 15, and the final assessment by April 15.
We believe these assessments will be a valuable tool for homeschool parents to follow their child's progress throughout the year. To review the test scores after a student takes the assessment, parents log into the ‘parent portal’ on the LGL website and use the student username and password.
For anyone who wants to take this pre/post assessment that we offer families for free, please contact your academic advisor so that they can get you a username and password:
