   “I wanted to stay near my family rather than go to
    university. For now I thought NPC would be a
    good way to make the transition.”
     – Trevor Foster



Rebekah Wilson


    “It’s easy to relate to the teachers here because the
     classes are small and they (the teachers) go out of
     their way to explain things so you can do it
     on your own.”
     – Rebekah L. Wilson



With four main campuses and five smaller centers located throughout northeastern Arizona, NPC provides Native American students with locations close to home. Continue to enjoy family connections while you earn a quality education featuring small class sizes and personal attention from instructors.

  • More than one-fourth of the students at NPC are Native American.
