The School Day

Doors open at 8:00AM. Class begins at 9:00AM. Between 8:00AM and 9:00AM students can get to work on projects or grab breakfast and get ready for the day. Doors close at 4:30PM but the last 90 minutes of the day are devoted to electives and project work and allow students to receive additional support. Students playing sports or engaged in internships can arrange alternative schedules provided they are in good standing. Because the NGL Academy is not lecture based, it is much easier to accommodate students needing special adjustments to their schedules than in a traditional school.

NGL Academy Schedule

NGL Academy follows a block schedule, with classes meeting on a rotating basis several times throughout the week for longer class sessions.


NGL Academy will provide a four-times-a-day bus service between locations in North Omaha to the NGL Academy campus.
