Shining His Light

A message from our Superintendent

Welcome to Nebraska’s largest choice school system, enrolling nearly 20,000 students in 71 schools across 23 counties. We endeavor to awaken the greatness that is within each child by engaging the whole family in a supportive community that sees each person as a unique and valued creation of God.

Catholic education has what we’ve always valued – morals, high expectations, rigor, service – but did you know that each year we enroll more students with disabilities, and those from non-English speaking households? Our families, parishes and other benefactors provide additional resources every year in efforts to provide safe and inclusive environments that serve every child.

You can also find STEM/STEAM/STREAM labs, extraordinary fine arts programs, vocational preparation partnerships with local colleges, dual enrollment courses and a new Dual Language Academy, Omaha’s first bilingual immersion opportunity for students as young as preschool.

Thank you for visiting and I pray you will join us in any one of our many diverse, thriving and welcoming Catholic school and parish communities.


Dr. Michael Ashton
Superintendent of Catholic Schools
Archdiocese of Omaha
