"Thrive Together is a safe space where people from different cultural backgrounds are together in one room, doing activities together. We learn about our differences and similarities, connecting with our identity proudly."

Thrive Together Student

Thrive Together, supports Anchorage School District students in grades 7 through 12.

Thrive Together draws on research that indicates building and sustaining a positive identity – in combination with rigorous academic preparation and providing guidance on postsecondary navigation – is a critical and rarely addressed need in postsecondary access and completion programming.

Students participate in an intentional arc of learning across the semester, where they explore their post-secondary options, connect with their cultural identities, and plan for their futures.


"Thrive is where we come together as a community to reflect on what is important to each of us respectively and what we might want to direct our energies towards after high school."
