Educational Services

We at CITC believe all young people have the potential to succeed, to fully realize their own worth and to understand their responsibility to our community, while preparing themselves for the pursuit of their own path.

CITC is here as your partner to ensure our children receive a quality education—one that prepares and empowers them for success in academics and in life.

CITC provides educational programs that enrich academics, cultural values, traditional knowledge, family involvement and positive youth development.

We set high goals and have high standards for our students. We try to meet students where they are in their lives by addressing their individual learning needs, helping to reveal their true potential.

We believe education is the foundation for all our young people’s success in life, and for Our People’s future.
