The Saint Paul Indian Education program was created as a supplemental program of Saint Paul Public Schools in 1973 in response to the 1972 Indian Education Act. The initial purpose of the program was to provide supportive counseling and tutoring for American Indian students and their parents. In the early nineties the program increased its focus on language and cultural connection to improve the academic success of American Indian students. In 1992 the focus increased to include post-secondary planning and outreach efforts to eligible students who most needed assistance. The American Indian Education Program provides services to students; including parents and families.
