Native American Education Program
Aanii, Biindigen (Greetings, Welcome)
Grand Rapids Public Schools is proud to offer the only Native American Education Program (NAEP) in West Michigan.
Our mission: To support our Native American scholars in successful academic achievement while preserving and respecting the whole person through culturally relevant activities.
Our Vision: Gakina agegoo ji-ni-minoowazhiwebag, A balanced and productive future.
Eligibility: We serve all native American scholars regardless of quantum and/or tribal members.
Serving the Native American Community
NAEP is a federally funded program throughout the United States Government known as Title VI. Through the collection of Indian Student Eligibility (ED 506) forms for the Title VI Indian Education Formula Grant Program, we are able to serve over 170 scholars from 29 tribes across turtle island. Tribal Representatives provide consultation that supports the development of credible programming, curriculum, and resources for participating scholars. We actively engage with the Native American community through program events and initiatives that will provide scholars with a balanced and productive future.
