Hoop of Learning

The Hoop of Learning Program serves Native American students and is designed as a high school-to-college bridge program administered by the Maricopa County Community College District (MCCCD). For more than 10 years, we have provided thousands of Native American students who, largely due to socio-economic reasons, would not have access to higher education, a pathway to college.

Our goal is to:

  • Increase high school graduation and retention rates.
  • Increase Native American enrollment and participation in college.
  • Empower Native American students to reach their goals.
  • Enhance Native American culturally relevant curriculum.
  • Increase diversity on campus.
  • Strengthen partnerships with external Native American communities, school districts, and other agencies.

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Student must be an enrolled member of a federal/state recognized tribe (or in the process of obtaining a census #.)
  • Students are required to contact their High School counselor for approval.
  • Student must show proof of citizenship (CIB, or Birth Certificate)
  • Students must take Assessment tests in Reading, Writing & Math.
  • Student must have a minimum 2.00 GPA in High School
  • Student & Parent(s) must attend mandatory orientation.
