Bryan Community Focus Program is an alternative high school program that combines high behavioral and academic expectations with innovative teaching designed to help students meet the requirements for a Lincoln Public Schools high school diploma. The smaller learning environment at Bryan allows for more individualized instruction. We have around 160 students and 15 teachers. Class sizes are usually no larger than 18 students, and some classes are much smaller. Our staff strive to build strong connections to each student to understand them and support their growth.
At Bryan, we try to make every day a new day (learning from mistakes and moving on) and focus on daily progress toward meeting goals. We are always learning about equity and we try to make Bryan a welcoming place for all students. Our mascot is the Phoenix, symbolizing new opportunities, and rising up above challenges.
Over the course of the 2021-22 school year, our students worked to populate our garden with local plants. Check out the results of their work with the video below!
Our staff are working on new ways to engage students in learning and career planning. We will help students understand how their own experience and expertise can contribute to a classroom, job, or community. We will also push students to learn new skills and information and build new connections to careers and community through project-based learning.
Students can apply to be a student at Bryan through our website, and often times students are encouraged to apply by an administrator or counselor at their home high school. Students and parents or guardians must participate in an interview process and agree to Bryan expectations if selected to attend Bryan Community. While at Bryan, students may continue to participate in athletics or other student activities at their home high school.
For more information please contact Bryan Community directly at (402) 436-1308.
If you applied in previous school years, you will need to apply again each year. If you applied in March of 2023 or later, we have your application on file. We have many students on our waiting list, but we do add students throughout the year. You will be contacted if there is an opening. Thank you.
