University of Nebraska High School Leadership: U. of Nebraska High School, online


The University of Nebraska High School (UNHS) is proud to work with the National Association of Student Councils (NASC) to automatically make all UNHS diploma students official student council members. Students are welcome to take their membership to the next level by completing the NASC Student Leaders Program.

NASC Student Leaders Program 

The Student Leaders Program challenges students who are looking to enhance their leadership skills. Resources and information are available at and here is our step-by-step guide. Throughout their participation in the program students:

  • Complete an application packet
  • Create a portfolio of their leadership accomplishments
  • Secure letters of recommendation
  • Write an essay

Students who successfully complete the program receive certification from NASC along with an official letter from the sponsoring organization, the National Association of Secondary School Principals. This adds value to students' college and scholarship applications.


  • There is no cost to become a certified student leader. 
  • The expected completion time is one traditional semester (18 weeks).
  • There are no credits associated with the completion of the program that can be transferred to the UNHS diploma program.
