How It Works
Nevada State High School (NSHS) is an early college charter high school for juniors and seniors. NSHS students take real college courses with real professors on real college and university campuses in Nevada. These courses count for both high school and college credit, making it possible for our students to earn their high school diplomas while getting a head start on their college degrees. The best part about it? Attending NSHS is absolutely free — we pay for tuition and fees for every student for up to five classes each semester.

What Our Students Say
I don’t think I would have committed to finishing college had I not come to NSHS. What I love about this school is that it provides a smooth transition to college readiness, and students have a chance to renew their confidence in their academic abilities. I feel more than ready to start the next school year at UNLV, and I am glad I will be going in with a clear idea of how college works.
From the onset of my time at Nevada State High School, I was encouraged and challenged to develop as a scholar and evolve as a thinker. I was given a unique opportunity to earn college credits while finishing high school, and I mastered skills that have become the foundation of my future success. With over 50 college credits completed at Nevada State High School, I was able to graduate from Chapman University within two years, saving over $80,000. Nevada State High School has been the most valuable academic component in my life, and I am grateful for the outstanding experience I received.
Thank you for making my transition to college easier and opening up opportunities I would not have had otherwise. I was not doing well in traditional high school due to cultural barriers, and NSHS really helped improve my quality of life.
It’s hard to learn responsibility when you’re barely able to drive a car, but I felt comfort from NSHS and achieved one of the most crucial and significant qualities in the world of careers — preparation. Despite my tendency to procrastinate, I do believe I have grown into a student who is prepared for anything, and that is the biggest reward I could ever ask for.
Like many other students, public high school opened up some doors for me to potentially go down the wrong path. The traditional high school structure CLEARLY wasn’t working for me, and I was desperately searching for a different way to complete high school. Fortunately, I found your program through family friends, and it literally changed my life.
Since earning my MAT in Secondary Social Studies Education, I have become a teacher in Tampa, Florida. I am finishing my fourth year in education, and I just wanted to thank you for everything you did for me. Nevada State High School truly prepared me for higher education and my career, and the same expectations you set for us, I now set for my own students.
I am grateful every day that one of my friends complains about English 102 or CH because I was able to knock those out what feels like forever ago. You seriously changed my life and gave me so many opportunities.
With your help, I have been able to stay ahead of the curve and take the time to explore my options through education.
