Celebrating Student Success
The ECA Luncheon
On Wednesday April 26th 2017, NAYA will host the 8th annual Early College Academy Luncheon, and we invite YOU to join us! NAYA celebrates the success of our onsite high school and profiles students who overcome significant challenges, thanks to the ECA’s integration of culture and traditions in our classrooms and wraparound services. Our students, who are 93% people of color, are given the culturally-specific supports that help them achieve their goals, graduate, go to college, and become successful community members. Join us in April and support our students by becoming a sponsor or buying your ticket today!
Did you know that less than half of Native American students in Portland Public Schools graduate on time? Addressing this alarming trend is the driving force behind our high school. When youth feel proud of their heritage, aware of their traditions, and are connected to the community, they are more likely to thrive in high school, college and career.The ECA is successful because we teach culture.
