This is a unique public school per NRS 392A. The Academy runs on the same annual schedule as the University of Nevada, Reno, and is located on the university campus. Students are placed in courses by ability, rather than age or grade level. Dual-enrollment options are available in the context of Personalized Learning Plans. About half of the students have moved to Nevada to attend this school. Monthly newsletters that contain student and teacher highlights are available on the Academy website.
