About Us


Centura is NCA accredited through AdvanceEd.

We believe one of our key differences is location.  Centura Public Schools was consolidated in 1967, and is located five miles from Boelus, Cairo, and Dannebrog, Nebraska.  Grand Island is a short, 17-mile drive and other area towns have a direct route to our facilities.  To enhance our Vision Statement of A School Community about Students, Excellence, and Education, the entire school is networked and our teachers consistently utilize instructional technology to enhance instruction.

The school district recently completed a new track project along with a stellar high-jump pit area.  Plans are in the works for updating two secondary science classrooms and the science lab.
