- Most Rev. George J. Lucas, Archbishop of Omaha

We Love Affordability

Tuition Assistance

We believe all families who want to provide their children with a Catholic education should have the opportunity. Tuition assistance is available from a number of private and parish-based programs. This aid is not required to be repaid. It is not a loan, but rather a direct reduction in the amount of tuition owed.

Families at our schools receive millions of dollars in needs-based tuition assistance as well as merit-based scholarships each school year between these various sources. In 2020, the archdiocese provided more than $500,000 in tuition assistance for 440 high school students alone. These scholarships were funded by the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal, the Catholic Futures Foundation of Northeast Nebraska, and private donors.


We Love Faith in Academics

Our Curriculum and Instruction encourage relationship with Christ

Faith is the reason for our existence and the foundation for everything we do and say. Catholic social teachings are central to the experience at each of our schools, and we are committed to growing students' faith by educating them on Catholic teachings and living according to the principles Jesus taught. Each school's curriculum is devoted to lifelong learning and formation.


We Love Our Teachers

Career Opportunities

Our teachers are the hands and feet of Christ, providing a loving, faith-centered learning environment for our students. The Archdiocese of Omaha Catholic Schools Office regularly posts career opportunities for teachers as well as current curriculum guides and information.
