Bellevue University

Located just outside of Omaha, Nebraska, Bellevue University provides a unique and innovative approach to higher education. The University has over 10,000 students and offers numerous undergraduate and graduate programs, including accelerated, cohort-based, in-class and online opportunities. 

We’ve been fortunate to receive wonderful support from Bellevue. They’ve graciously hosted our Quest Academy, Omaha, since its inception. Our Academy students have access to world-class resources on the Bellevue campus, including a state-of-the-art science laboratory, makerspaces and art studios, athletics facilities, access to the university library and more. 

For many Academy students, going to high school on a college campus has broadened both their education and career opportunities, including the option to pursue associate and bachelor’s degrees from Bellevue.
