KCC Mission Statement
As part of the Anchorage School District, KCC is the connection between school and careers. Our programs are taught by industry professionals and/or teachers with extensive knowledge of industry standards. Each program is guided and endorsed by an advisory council whose members come directly from industry and post-secondary education. At KCC we also promote professionalism. Twenty-five percent of a student's grade in each class is based on professionalism standards. Prompt and regular attendance, appropriate dress, and a positive attitude are basic expectations.
Career technical and vocational education offers students the opportunity to explore career options and learn the skills needed to obtain an entry-level position in the career of their choice. In addition, students will learn what will be expected of them in the world of work, create a career portfolio and develop the skills necessary to apply and interview for a job.
Classes at KCC are the equivalent of 3 class periods at a regular high school, and earn 1.5 elective credits for successful completion. Credits in math, science, social studies and language arts also may be earned. Students enroll for an AM or a PM class. Transportation is provided from your home high school.
If you are a Junior (grade 11) or a Senior (grade 12) and you would like to enroll at the King Career Center, see your counselor at your home school or call 742-8900.
Students may receive academic credit for many of the courses at KCC. Many vocational/technical career fields have extensive application of math, science, social science and language arts. Those requirements are reflected in our curriculae.
KCC Full Day program
For a limited number of students staying at King Career Center, the all-day program is an excellent option. Students will earn academic credits through ASD iSchool and APEX online classes delivered in a computer lab for half the day, and take their KCC CTE class the other half of the day. Supported by a highly qualified certificated teacher in the lab, students will work on a variety of core requirements. Students will continue to be enrolled at their “home” schools, be eligible to participate in all extra-curricular activities, and ultimately graduate with their class.
