Dear Frontier Families:

 

You are invited to sign up for enrichment courses offered at Frontier this Oct. 23-Nov. 20. Course descriptions are attached and listed below.

  • Please know that not all requests are guaranteed due to room constrictions. Requests will be granted on a first-come-first-served basis.
  • Courses are subject to cancellation based on low enrollment.
  • There is a fee to cover the cost of each event. Payment can be made by check or from student allotments.
  • The staff and I will offer each course at our Eagle River location during October-November and then repeat the same course offerings during February-March at our Anchorage location. The High School Seminar is offered at both locations in the Fall and not at all during the Spring because college and career planning is time-sensitive.

 

“PARENTS, YOU DON’T HAVE TO DO IT ALONE”

This workshop will give parents tips on financial aid, cost-saving ideas, ways to help your student select the right education, organizational skills and more. You will have a better understanding of what to expect in the coming months to help your student plan life after high school.

FREE EDUCATIONAL TOOLS AND RESOURCES

The Frontier Learning Profile

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

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.
