Academic Assistance Program

Teachers provide academic support for Southern Ute, JOM and Descendent K-12 students at each of the Ignacio School District buildings during the school day. After school, tutoring for high school students takes place at the Ignacio High School campus, while grades K-8 after school programs are held at The Southern Ute Education Department building. Parents are welcome to contact teachers regarding academic issues.

Youth in Action

From June through July join the Southern Ute Department of Education teachers for enrichment and fun. Go on trips, outings, or participate in workshops that will help you keep your academic edge for the upcoming school year.

Credit Recovery

Credit recovery will be conducted at the high school where students may get ahead or make up credits they missed during the school year.


The Youth Leadership Program provides an opportunity for our students to visit and experience various locations and develop leadership skills that will help them succeed in both academic and community settings.
