Academy Goals

Wells Academy strives to help Native American people in economically disadvantaged areas. 

                        1. To provide CNC machinists and skilled industrial employees to fill open job positions.
                        2. To provide individualized on-the-job training through a student program and mentoring.
                        3. To bring employment challenged groups into balance with the general population. 

For example, manufacturing employs approximately 20% of the qualified overall work force, 
but only 5% of the qualified Native American work force. 


Our Board of Directors provide expertise and guidance in the areas of Business, Education, Finance, Industry and Native American Culture.
