Our students represent the full spectrum of capabilities and interests, and at Atheneum they develop these to the fullest. Small classes, individualized study plans, and a program that instills reading, writing, speaking and reasoning skills, and health of mind and body ensure a complete preparation for college and a life of continual growth in learning. Although we do not teach to the test, our students continue to outscore the best schools in Anchorage, class by class, on the CAT/5 standardized tests. Our graduates have been accepted to the colleges and universities of their choice, including Cornell University, College of William and Mary, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Mount Holyoke, St. John's College (Annapolis, Santa Fe), Lewis and Clark, and the University of Alaska Fairbanks. Many of our students have had unique achievements (while attending Atheneum), including: » 2nd place among rookies and 17th overall in the 2001 Iditarod » 3rd place in the 2001 Junior Iditarod » 2003 Anchorage Mayoral candidate » Women's world record holder in Powerlifting » State Geography Bee Champion » State Spelling Bee Champion » State Chess Champion » Essay, short story, and poetry contest winners
