Success Through Education!

 

The focus of the UAIC Education Department is on student success. Making things happen educationally for our tribal members and tribal children is our No. 1 priority. In May of 2008, the UAIC Tribal School received its accreditation in its first-year eligibility. Operating since 2005, the UAIC School has a hands-on learning philosophy that helps teach children in pre-K through 6th grades key aspects of Indian culture and foster critical thinking to prepare tribal members to face future challenges. The school houses one of California’s most extensive collections of Native American Literature, which is available to all children at the school and other tribal members. The school also offers Occupational Therapy, private instruction, homework clubs and several career and personal development opportunities and services.
