KLA Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of students attend KLA?

The Kuskokwim Learning Academy (KLA) is for students that struggle in a traditional school setting and are trying to get a high school diploma. Our students, typically, do not go to college after graduation. Some of the many options our students have chosen include attending Job Corp, AVTEC, YUUT Adult Ed Programs, and entering the military. Our school is for those looking for an alternative route to success. We help our students discover that alternative path and work with them to achieve their goals. May Bethel students live in the dorms? We strongly discourage Bethel residents from applying to the dorms. We will consider Bethel residents for the dorms only under special circumstances.
