Summary

This report describes the School, College, and University Partnership Program (SCUP) at Northern Arizona University (NAU). Supported by grants from the U.S. Department of Education, this program established partnerships among NAU, Northern Arizona School Board Association, seven Arizona secondary schools, and the Navajo Nation and the Hopi Tribe. This year-round program, which included an academic and a summer component, tried to meet the needs of educationally disadvantaged students from low-income families living on or near the Hopi and Navajo reservations. There were a total of 9,635 students assisted during the grant period, with the majority being Native American participants. A total of $696,049 in federal funds were authorized for the program during the 3-year grant period. The first phase of the program provided educational services to students in grades 7-12 at the participating target schools. Educational services included drop-out prevention programs, career and personal development programs, and computer literacy programs. The program also included teacher training and parent education classes. The second phase of the program consisted of Nizhoni Academy, a 5-week academic program conducted on the campus of NAU. This program introduced high school students to the rigors of university life while improving specific skills identified as conducive to success in college. Evaluation results indicate that the program was successful in meeting the needs of educationally disadvantaged students living on or near the Hopi and Navajo reservations. (LP)
