of Nebraska High School: Distance Learning as Home Education
any parent will tell you, the choice to homeschool is often
one of the most important decisions to make regarding a child’s
education. What to teach, how to teach and which curriculum
to use are often daunting decisions to make, ones that can
have a far reaching effect on their future.
that decision may weigh heavily upon many parents, those whose
children are enrolled in the University of Nebraska–Lincoln
Independent Study High School feel confident that the educational
experience of their children will amply prepare them for a
future ripe with possibilities.
High School was founded in 1929 as a means to serve the youth
within Nebraska. In 1978, Nebraska’s High School earned accreditation
from the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation
and School Improvement (NCACASI), officially becoming the first
fully university program to do so. Today, Nebraska’s High School
has students in all 50 states and 135 countries.
our accreditation means that we continually adhere to strong
educational guidelines and helps ensure that our students
not only learn the material, but are able to apply and use that knowledge elsewhere,” says
Lisa Bourlier, Associate Principal of Nebraska’s High School.
is also important for those students enrolled in Nebraska’s
diploma program. “Earning an accredited diploma means that
more doors are open for those students after graduation,” Bourlier
states. Of the nearly 3,500 graduates of Nebraska’s High School,
students have gone on to such colleges as Yale, William and
Mary, Penn State and, of course, the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.
High School offers more than 160 courses in 14 subject areas.
Offered in both print and online formats, all of the courses
are designed by an in-house instructional design staff who
have won numerous curriculum awards from the University Continuing
Education Association. Nebraska’s High School also offers advising
services, a friendly customer service staff and Way Cool™,
a new online course management system.
