An average year of college at a higher education institution in Nevada could cost you more than $5,000 (including tuition, standard fees, and textbooks). By attending NSHS, you can save up to two years of college tuition.
NSHS gives you the opportunity to become a college student, which means you’ll experience the flexibility of planning your own college schedule. You’ll have the ability to choose your college professors, fulfill college core classes, and have the independence to explore a college major before you’re even out of high school.
High school elective classes taught by NSHS faculty provide support and personalized planning. Our instructors learn about your strengths, weakness, and future goals, so we can better serve your needs and empower you to self-advocate and problem solve in the college environment.
At NSHS, we want to get you where you want to be. Everyone has a dream, and we want to help you get there. We’ll be there to help you with registering for college, scheduling classes, providing you with tutoring support, researching colleges you may want to attend, planning college degrees, developing college finance plans, and applying for scholarships.
NSHS has been designated an “Exemplary School or 5-Star School” by the Nevada Department of Education in 2007, 2009, 2010, and 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015 and will continue to be in the future. We have also been awarded by the US News & World Report’s America’s Best High Schools Bronze medal recipient and Most Connected Classrooms 2011.
NSHS college plans are developed towards a Bachelor’s degree. Students may earn an Associate’s degree if the plan works with their goals. Over the years, many of our students are proud to say that they received their Associate’s degree before they graduated from high school. NSHS can track at least 91% of its graduates that have gone to colleges throughout the country after high school working toward an Associates or Bachelors degree. Many of our graduates have Masters degrees and Doctorates and are professional with various careers.
As a student at NSHS, students prepare for graduation and beyond. We want to provide our students with the tools needed to receive a college degree and start a career. Students learn resume and cover letter writing, participate in mock interviews given by the Nevada business community, and train and test with ACT’s job skills assessment system WorkKeys to earn a National Career Readiness Certificate.
Students choose to come to our program for a variety of reasons. One common factor is that they are motivated and ready to be challenged academically. At NSHS, students attend real college courses with real college professors in a real college environment. To be successful at NSHS students need to be motivated to go to college, parents need to be committed to support the school mission, and the school needs to be devoted to support the student. Together we can make it happen!
Unlike your traditional public high school, attending NSHS is a choice. Motivated students from all over Southern Nevada, including Henderson, Las Vegas, and even Pahrump, come to us because they are interested in getting ahead in college.
