About Our School
Star of the North Secondary School is a public charter school designed to meet the needs of secondary students living in the FNSB School District. Focused on reconnecting youth to school, we offer a self-contained learning environment staffed by master teachers and staff who have deep knowledge and compassion for early adolescents and teens. Star of the North creates small learning communities of youth that emphasize positive learning experiences without the distractions found in conventional secondary schools. Our focus includes teens who show a need for an alternative setting or who have varied schedules involving work and family.
Star of the North Secondary School operates two campuses in the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District. Star of the North was created by the merger of two successful programs; the North Pole Academy and the Career Education Center. Star of the North enrolls 200 students each year, 100 at each campus. "The Academy" includes grades 7 through 12, and "CEC" includes grades 11 and 12.
Star of the North operates under the supervision of an Academic Policy Committee, which is comprised of parents, students, and staff. The APC sets the overall guiding policies for Star of the North, and each campus has a head teacher who is responsible for the day to day guidance.
Star of the North Secondary School is accredited by the Northwest Association of Accredited Schools.
