School Overview

S�’ah Naagh�� Bik’eh H�zh��n is the basis for curriculum at Dine College, a Navajo phrase which translates into English as thinking, planning, living, and assuring. Dine College is a community college serving the Navajo nation in Utah, New Mexico, and Arizona. It offers two year programs in various subjects, including business administration, computer technology, education, social work, liberal arts, the Navajo language, and various other subjects.

The college is located in Tsaile, Arizona. It was incorporated to educate members of the Navajo Nation. Dine consists of 2 campuses and 6 community centers spread throughout the Navajo Nation.

Dine College conducts thorough assessment tests to identify student strengths and weaknesses. College administrators utilize test results to tailor curriculum to student needs. To prevent burnout, assessments are conducted periodically throughout the school year. Assessment results are used to improve curriculum, so students are not graded.

Educational programs are designed to provide immediate job training or prepare students to enter 4 year colleges or universities. The college also offers remedial courses for students unprepared for rigorous college academics. Dine College preserves Navajo culture by offering Navajo language and history classes.
