Our students have earned more than $120 million in college scholarships, 92% of which were academic scholarships.
More than 100 students have been recognized by the National Merit Scholarship Program, including 65 semifinalists and 51 finalists, and five perfect 36 ACT scores have been achieved.
Skutt Catholic is one of only two Catholic High Schools in the state to have multiple students named to the Omaha World Herald All-Metro and All-State Academic teams during this time frame.
Skutt Catholic High School offers more academic courses than any other non-public school in the state.
We offer 16 Advanced Placement courses and 21 Dual Enrollment courses with area colleges. It is feasible for a Skutt Catholic graduate to enter many colleges with enough credits to have earned sophomore standing – if so desired.
Skutt Catholic is also the recipient of the State Department of Education Blue Ribbon Award, making the Top 50 in the country out of more than 325 applicants. SC is the only school in Nebraska, with more than 400 students, to earn this national award in the past decade. Schools can only apply for this national award if their ACT/SAT averages rank among the top 15% of all school scores nationwide (public & private). Skutt Catholic’s ACT averages are at an all-time high and within that 15% mark.
The Council for American Private Education also commended Skutt Catholic for our “commitment to providing modifications and support to educate students with learning needs.”
The average Skutt Catholic teacher has 17 years experience, and nearly 80% of our educators hold a Master’s Degree. For comparison’s sake, the state average for educators with a Master’s Degree is 45%.
