Providing positive outcomes for young women

Uta Halee Academy provides a safe high school environment where students develop their skills with the help of supportive faculty and staff. Our graduates get jobs, succeed in school and return to alumni events, proud to tell us of what they have accomplished.

In order to be effective, we have learned that partnerships work best, and we embrace the fact that our services will continue to evolve according to the latest research, state initiatives and the needs of the young women we serve. We have expanded the services we offer to increase family engagement, and have embraced trauma-responsive care. We work to bring hope, independence and citizenship to Nebraska’s future generations.
