Additional Programs
Students participate in the following programs depending upon the time of year, student age, and/or student or teacher interest.

ARTIST IN THE SCHOOL The Artist in the School program, funded by the Alaska State Council for the Arts and Auke Bay PTA, provides a 3-week residency for an artist at Auke Bay. In any given year, half of the school works intensively with the artist on a project, and other classes visit the artist during "studio" time to watch him or her work. A systematic rotation ensures that all children will have several opportunities, over the course of their 6 years at Auke Bay, to actively participate.

We have a variety of after school activities that are available for students of different ages. Scholarships may be available, please contact the front office. Please note RALLY students may attend extra-curricular activities free of charge.
