Boys Town youth in grades 9 through 12 attend Boys Town High School, while younger children attend Wegner Middle School. Each school offers traditional academic curriculum as well as a number of electives.

In each education setting, a social skills curriculum is integrated ​into academic courses and daily school life. Since many students come to Boys Town years behind their peers in key subject areas, our schools focus on helping them achieve academic success that translate​s into success in the real world.

Both schools are fully accredited by the Nebraska Department of Education and the North Central Association, ​​and are internationally approved for the placement of students.

The Boys Town Reading Center has developed a nationally recognized curriculum that assesses and helps remediate reading deficiencies in students. On average, students in the reading program gain two years of reading skills for each year of instruction.

Boys Town schools maintain a 10:1 student-to-teacher ratio to help ensure individualized attention and student success. The U.S. Department of Education has awarded Boys Town the Education Excellence and Excellence for Drug Prevention awards.

Boys Town also offers a wide range of opportunities for students outside the classroom. Athletics and other co-curricular activities are another way to teach life skills, values, and ethics to our students, and are a vital component of our care environment.

A Career Center also offers special courses to help students as they prepare to enter the workforce, go to college, or join the military.
