The Barona Band of Mission Indians believes that education is the key to successful cultural
relationships and the foundation for our future.


To this effort, the Barona Band of Mission Indians created the Barona Indian Charter School to provide important educational opportunities for children on the Barona Indian Reservation and throughout the local San Diego community. With funding from the Tribe, the Barona Indian Charter School now includes a tutoring/computer center, comprehensive library, preschool program, and high school classrooms. Building upon these valuable tools, in 2004 the school was ranked third of 5,270 California elementary schools in test score achievement.


Our hope is to broaden the tools to inspire youth throughout California. It is with great pride we introduce the Barona Education Grant Program.
