Ventura County Indian Education Consortium

Educational support is available to Pre K – 12th grade students with Native American or Alaskan Indian Heritage. A Title VI federal grant provides Indian Education at our school site. Regular school site visits with an Indian Education teacher increase knowledge of cultural identity and awareness, while increasing academic achievement. At the High School level, students continue their cultural studies and receive college and career counseling as well. Research shows that students rooted well in their own cultural identity are better equipped to face challenges and be successful in school.

To sign up, ask the school office for an application or visit the Indian Education Program on the web at https://tinyurl.com/vcindianed for the enrollment form. For more information, call the office of Ventura County Indian Education Consortium at 805-641-5000, Ext. 1193.
