Homeliving supports the mission of the Homeliving program by inspiring and empowering youth by providing students with the support and structure needed to maximize development in all areas. Homeliving provides various family groups, guidance night, and a counseling program which align with the common core and the Dine content standards. Based on this philosophy, the following goals have been established to guide the development of the home living program.


Annually, we incorporate the following skills:

  3. Progress Grade Check/Attendance every semester
  4. Prevention Awareness/Career Pathway
  5. Arts and Craft
  6. Recreation, Leisure and Healthy Lifestyle

Each dormitory operates 24 hours a day 5 days a week. Qualified individuals oversee the dormitory policies and procedures. The Home Living Specialist, Dorm Manager facilitates and maintains consistent communication with the Home Living Assistances and Recreation Technicians.


The Home living program seeks to encourage in each student a sense of self-discipline with individual responsibility and accountability for one’s actions; self-respect as well as respect for others; and an individual code of behavior which reflects the values of family and the school’s community.


In order for our program to be successful, everyone in the program must do the following:


For students to learn, get along with each other, and feel happy, they must be in an orderly atmosphere with fair, well-understood rules. The goal of positive discipline should be to turn bad behavior into good behavior. Parents and guardians are important people. Family support reinforces the program’s disciplinary effort and is crucial to assisting home living assistance by encouraging appropriate behaviors.


Our program must be as safe, secure, and trouble-free as possible. We know that the learning process is substantially enhanced by order, cooperation, and respect. We, as a home living program will abide by a code of conduct (standards, expectations, and consequences) that will preserve this educational environment.


We support and defend high expectations and expect others to do the same.
