߲ݴý University Honors Academy has secured re-accreditation for its dedication to providing high-quality dual credit programs.

“We provide strong, individualized support that recognizes the unique situations in every high school so that our teachers can focus on teaching, and our students can focus on learning,” says Director of Wesleyan Honors Academy Heather Zaruba.”

The Wesleyan Honors Academy has flourished since its origin in 1995 when it offered dual credits at one high school.  ߲ݴý now provides 55 different courses to students at more than 80 Nebraska schools.

Zaruba says the growth reflects the academy’s mission to equip students with college credits and skills to thrive in higher education. “Many of my former dual-credit students have shared how much more prepared they were for college-level work than their peers on campus.”

߲ݴý is the only Nebraska school to hold National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (NACEP) accreditation with a Concurrent Enrollment Program Endorsement. ߲ݴý will keep the achievement until 2030.
