TRAINING AND COLLEGE CREDIT OPPORTUNITIES:
Northwest Campus (NWC), part of the University of Alaska Fairbank’s College of Rural and Community Development. NWC has a unique student population and plays an important role in providing educational and lifelong learning opportunities for residents of the region. Students in Savoonga can earn college credit while still in high school through a number of programs.
Together the Bering Strait School District (BSSD) and Nome Public Schools (NPS) developed the Northwestern Alaska Career and Technical Center (NACTEC), a joint-venture regional vocational training center located in Nome. NACTEC was designed to provide Bering Strait School District and Nome Public Schools high school students with the necessary resources and skills for employment opportunities, the pursuit of postsecondary education, and independent living skills through instruction in four focus areas: career and technical skills, career exploration, life skills, and work readiness skills.
