Our curriculum focuses on indigenous literature, and our faculty and staff have a wealth of experience working with rural students. The IAC writing team believes in encouraging rural students to connect their studies with their cultural heritage.

Student Testimonials

Picture of Tatiana Kiarcimalria AndrewQuyana! (Thank you) for a wonderful class experience. I’ve gained confidence in my writing, and your support aided in my understanding of grammatical structure. I especially enjoyed the group outline exercises we did in order to help define our stories.Tatiana Kiarcimalria Andrew
Photograph of John NicoriGoing through the English program helped me understand how to express my thoughts in words, and I thank the program for helping me to better help others.John Nicori
Picture of Jennifer HillI was nervous about taking English, but I quickly learned I had nothing to worry about. Katie Lubowicki & Chris Miles are wonderful! They were helpful every step of the way! All of the lessons were engaging and useful. They were both very patient and helpful with every student. I would highly recommend both of them to anyone interested in taking an English class.Jennifer Hill
Picture of Shannon KlescewskiWe took a week-long intensive class. The instructor and assistant did the class in a manner that I did not get overwhelmed. And the assistant was very helpful and was on site and stayed with the class at every session. I most importantly loved how they incorporated the Alaska native short stories into the class. This class definitely will help with my essay papers. Shannon Klescewski
