Chairman’s Message

Welcome to the San Carlos Apache College website.  I hope this message finds you in good spirits.

The San Carlos Apache Tribal Council is proud of its initiative to provide higher education, through our Apache College, to our children.  This has been a lifelong dream of our people.  This dream has been reinforced through a survey of our people who have stated education is the most important issue facing us today.

We are happy with our Apache College Board of Regents’ efforts in opening the doors to our Apache College this August 2017.  We are thankful to the partnerships we have established with the Gila Community College, Arizona State University, and the Tohono O’odham Community College. I encourage all our high school students to seriously consider our Apache College to further your education.

We envision our Apache College combining personal attention with cultural relevance, in such a way as to encourage our children to pursue higher education at our Apache College, help stem the tide of scholarship dropouts, and to better meet the educational needs of our children.

Thank you,

Terry Rambler, Chairman
San Carlos Apache Tribal Council
