EDUCATION IN ALASKA

Adventists have been a part of the Alaska culture since the late 1800’s.  The first known teacher in Alaska was Mrs. J. W. Young who taught in Ketchikan in 1895.  Adventists continued to spread the Advent message while impacting education in the Last Frontier.  Frank Daughtery, an Adventist teaching in a government school in Gambell, was significantly responsible for the development of the Adventist work on Saint Lawrence Island.  The first Adventist school in Alaska was started in 1936 in Ketchikan.  In 1938, Aleknagik Junior Academy was started so Adventist students would not have to travel the great distance to Auburn Adventist Academy.  Today we have 16 teachers in six schools that serve over 200 students in the communities of Anchorage, Dillingham, Fairbanks, Juneau, Palmer and Sitka.
