Native Student Program

Native Student Program

The Native Student Program is a supplemental program designed to assist American Indian and Alaska Native students with culturally unique academic needs to meet Washington State academic achievement standards.

What we offer our Native students

  • Academic support
  • Cultural programs and activities
  • Family events
  • Staff development for North Thurston employees
  • Culturally relevant curriculum and resources
  • Post-high school planning assistance

We are funded through a federal grant under Title VI of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. The amount of funds is determined by the number of students officially registered in our program.

Want to be a part of our program?

If you, your child, or a grandparent are an enrolled member of a tribe or band that is American Indian or Alaska Native, then they may be eligible to be enrolled in our program. Eligibility is certified with a form called the Federal 506 form.
