Announcement from the Admissions Coordinator:

Dear Prospective NPS Student and Family, 

Thank you for considering Navajo Preparatory School as a possible high school choice. We understand that many of our prospective applicants have been impacted by the school closures in their home area, and we are reaching out to share updates related to the admission process. 

We have extended the application deadline to April 27, 2020. We will schedule remaining interviews via phone or zoom. It is our mission to offer every applicant the opportunity to complete their application to the best of their ability during this time period. Admission decisions will be sent out to all students on or before May 8, 2020. 

In addition, the Navajo Preparatory School’s Board of Trustees approved a resolution to close campus for the remainder of the school year. While the campus will be closed, operations are still in place within the NPS Admissions Office. Staff are working from home, but will be available to support your child through the admissions process.  

We understand that some applicants may struggle to obtain necessary documents from their school during closure. If I can be of any assistance to you in completing your student’s application, please feel free to contact me via phone or email. 



Roderick Denetso, Admissions Coordinator
