learning from the center

inspiring a sense of place and direction
within the circle of life, from which students discover strength, purpose and vision.

With a strong commitment to alternative education and serving American Indian youth, Nawayee Center School evolved from an informal drop-in service to what it is today -- an alternative urban high school focusing on American Indian youth in grades 7 through 12.

The school provides transformative education, grounded in indigenous life-ways and love of learning. We exemplify excellence in indigenous education.
