Frequently Asked Questions

F.A.Q. About Bryan Community:

Who is the typical Bryan student?

There is not a ‘typical’ Bryan student. Our students represent the city of Lincoln, come from ALL the other Lincoln high schools, and make the CHOICE to attend.

Our process for admission allows each high school an allotted number of spots each semester, and students apply for admission along with getting referred by their home high school. This process keeps our population diverse and representative of the Lincoln community.

The reasons students come to Bryan are as unique as the students themselves. No student is sent to Bryan as punishment or forced to attend. We believe each student at Bryan has unique qualities. These special qualities allow them to find their way to Bryan for the opportunity to excel in school.

It does not matter why a student comes to Bryan; it only matters that the student is at Bryan and ready to make the positive changes in their life.
