Alumni Spotlight

Santee Lewis

“My education at Navajo Preparatory School was life-changing. It opened doors to opportunities and helped lay the foundation for me to succeed in advancing my education and later, in careers serving the Navajo people at the federal level and in leadership on the tribal level. As the only residential college preparatory high school serving Navajo students from all corners of the Navajo reservation, there is no other school that offers curriculum compatible with Navajo culture and teachings at the same time exposing students to arts, sciences, and athletics, while preparing them to successfully walk in two worlds—that of our indigenous people and the mainstream. I’m incredibly blessed to have attended Navajo Prep and am proud of the impact Navajo Prep alumni have now and will have into the future as we serve our Navajo communities.”

-Santee Lewis, former Executive Director of Navajo Nation Washington D.C. Office
