Our Affiliated Project: Greyhills Academy High School in Coconino County, Arizona
The remote community of Tuba City – home to Greyhills Academy High School – is situated amid the incredible desert beauty of north-eastern Arizona on the Navajo Indian Reservation, less than forty miles from the Grand Canyon. The Reservation comprises more than 27,000 square miles of spectacular but inhospitable countryside, extending into both Utah and New Mexico. Despite its massive scale and rich cultural heritage, residents of the Reservation are desperately poor. There is virtually no employment. Broken homes, alcoholism, and inadequate food are constant manifestations of poverty.
For this reason, Greyhills Academy High School serves as a beacon of hope to its surrounding community, providing children here with a quality education – the key to breaking the cycle of poverty so that students may rise above the difficult economic circumstances from which they come.
