Chugach Optional Elementary began in 1973 and is the oldest open optional program in Anchorage. Proud of its history, Chugach Optional’s strong program has inspired students in a supportive and exciting learning environment for several generations. Through our optional curriculum, we work to foster a joy of learning that extends beyond the classroom. We encourage the development of critical thinking and self-directed learning. We meet these goals by collaborating with our staff and families while providing ongoing staff professional development. Reference our Chugach Optional Handbook for a comprehensive look at the core principles and values of our school.

Chugach supports grades K through 6th and these grades will all be covered in the March lottery.
