About the Program
Title VI-Indian Education Program
The Title VI Indian Education program strives to maximize student success by providing a variety of resources and services tailored to meet the unique academic needs of Native American students. These offerings encompass tutoring, counseling resources, and college and career readiness programs, among other initiatives.
How does it work?
Native American Student Specialists: The specialists will be assigned by region to serve your Native student. Your student’s specialist can help with academic support, connect you to tribal resources, connect you to all Indian Education programs and services, and be a liaison between your student and EPIC schools for your needs.
College & Career Readiness Specialists will connect high school students with post-high school planning, advising, and funding opportunities. Students living in the Northeast and Southeast Regions are assigned to the Eastern CCR Specialist, and students living in the Southeast and Southwest Regions are assigned to the Western CCR Specialst.
