Why The Native American Tepees?
An appreciation of the world’s many cultures is an
important aspect of the program. The name Seven
Tepees represents the vast human diversity among
the seven continents, as well as Native American
traditions of caring for the environment and
connecting with nature.
Graduation is only one year away, and
Alex is interested in studying graphic
design after high school. Seven
Tepees helps Alex apply for college
and financial aid, and regular tutoring
in the Learning Center helps Alex earn
a B average in math.
Francis encourages Alex to apply

Alex is developing into a
leader and speaks with
