Goals and Vision

ARISE partners are committed to supporting sustained success for every Alaska Native student in Anchorage across their development—from learner to leader, toddler to elder. We want all children to have the opportunity to reach their full potential, because each individual’s success is a collective gain.

The goal of ARISE is that all Alaska Native children are empowered and nurtured to:

  1. Make successful academic transitions
  2. Achieve emotional, social and physical well-being
  3. Know who they are, their heritage and culture, and their role in the community

An individual’s academic journey from cradle to community includes crucial benchmarks, or outcomes, that can be measured by specific indicators. These data indicators will help us follow the progress of Alaska Native children and guide our efforts to support their educational success.
