Students in the NUI High School go through a readmission process after the Middle School program. Our graduates have all been accepted to 4 year colleges and universities with a good percentage receiving scholarships and acceptance into highly competitive universities. We challenge our students daily to master their subjects and provide an array of after school clubs and sports teams giving them the "well rounded" experience that today's college admissions officers search for.
