Philosophy Of Care

Compassion, Excellence, & Collaboration


What is now known as Nine Star Enterprises, Inc. (dba Nine Star Education & Employment Services) was founded in 1976 as a broad-based training institution. Its first offices were located on the campus of the Alaska Pacific University. In December of 1994, Nine Star completed the final paperwork to take possession of its own building in downtown Anchorage at 125 West Fifth Avenue.

In recent years, Nine Star has established offices at seven sites throughout the Southeast Alaska—Mountain View, Midtown, four offices downtown Anchorage, and the newest outreach in Wasilla.

Nine Star has grown into the fabric of Alaska, offering academic training and employment support to thousands of clients.
