“The Early Honors Program at APU was a lifesaver. It provided an in-state option that was an equal alternative to the out-of-state boarding school my daughter previously attended. I am so pleased to have her home. Thank you APU!”
“So far we have had a good impression of the program. Our son seems to enjoy education again and this is reflected in his overall attitude. We hope that Early Honors continues to be a great success. Thanks for the time and support you've shown Nick, we truly appreciate it.”

“As a parent with two teenagers in the EH program at APU, I can say the instructors and counselors have been great. They know the kids by name and assist them, and me, when needed. The small class size and personalized instruction allow the kids to receive an education unparalleled in the state. The campus is beautiful, quiet and peaceful. APU is a wonderful place for teenagers with the drive and ability, to spend their Senior year.”

Early Honors students are eligible for scholarships established and awarded through APU. First National Bank of Alaska generously supports scholarships for the program. Early Honors students are not eligible for Federal and State financial aid, because they are classified as non-degree seeking.
