About Us

The American Indian Culture & Education Program strives to further the educational, social, and cultural development of Native American students and their families in Contra Costa County. 

We are largely funded by a grant from the Office of Indian Education.  We rely on support from our parent group and the surrounding community to assist us in providing the most authentic experiences possible for our students.

Your child counts... so make sure of it!  If you haven't already done so, PLEASE complete a 506 form.  Each 506 form provides funding for virtually all our current services.  It may even allow us to add some new ones!!
