Rooted in our Catholic Faith, Skutt Catholic developed a Strategic Plan with aspirations, goals, and objectives aligned with our mission and vision and guided by our Catholic identity.
The process yielded a plan that identifies the school’s highest priorities and guide its key actions for the next five years. The Strategic Plan will propel continuous improvement and mission advancement while ensuring accountability for progress and a consistent focus on pursuing the right ideals. It will serve as an active, living document that provides a barometer for accomplishment and a persistent reminder of key priorities.
In April, aspirations were reviewed and tweaked during a meeting of the Strategic Planning Core team. Following the drafting of Aspirations, workgroups were organized to identify and develop relevant goals and objectives that ultimately need to be accomplished to successfully achieve the Strategic Plan.

Knowing that success needs to be carried out individually to reach school-wide success, Skutt Catholic aspires to empower its teachers, coaches, and staff to inspire and provide an exceptional educational experience from curriculum and instruction to activities and athletics, setting our students on the best possible course for their future.
We aspire to develop an exceptional school counseling office that will provide unparalleled social, emotional, and academic support and services to prepare every Skutt Catholic student to achieve excellence as a student and put them on a trajectory for post-secondary success.
With our mission as our guide, Skutt Catholic aspires to provide an environment that promotes leadership and accountability for students to Make a Difference in themselves while inspiring others to do the same.
Knowing that our SkyHawk family extends beyond our walls, we aspire to always embrace our current Skutt Catholic community while spreading the good news of the Skyhawk family to the larger Omaha community.
We aspire to be an attainable option for every family and their child(ren) who desires a Skutt Catholic education. This will include a clear vision and plan for the sustainability of our school and its facilities.
