Director’s Welcome

Mission Statement

NACTEC will prepare students for the world of work by assisting in the development of life skills, work readiness skills, academic skills, and career awareness while maintaining the academic standards of Nome Public Schools, Bering Strait School District, and affiliate partners in an atmosphere that respects diversity and individual identity.

Vision Statement

Our students will develop work ethics and employment skills to become capable of independent living while sustaining a healthy cultural identity.


Together the Bering Strait School District (BSSD) and Nome Public Schools (NPS) developed the Northwestern Alaska Career and Technical Center (NACTEC), as a joint-venture Regional Training Center located in Nome. NACTEC provides high school students with the resources and skills for independent living success leading to employment opportunities and the pursuit of postsecondary education.
