Make the Choice to Soar with the SkyHawks!

Make the Choice to Soar with the SkyHawks!

This is an important week for area 8th graders and their parents.  If they haven’t done so already they are registering for the placement exam at the Catholic high school of their choosing.  Testing at Skutt Catholic makes incoming students eligible for academic scholarships. Last year, more than 50 scholarships were given out from this exam. 

Below are just a few reasons why Skutt Catholic is a great choice for students to receive a well-rounded Catholic education. 

 

    • Skutt Catholic forms and educates young men and women to become Christian leaders who empower others, promote justice, and initiate change.
    • Co-educational Catholic high school with 730 students and a student to teacher ratio of 13:1
    • Our welcoming school community empowers our students to be whatever they choose to be….it prepares them academically, socially, spiritually,  and personally for their current and future success.
    • Skutt Catholic offers many diverse activity opportunities for students and families to join the community and grow outside of the classroom.
    • Prayer groups and discipleship programs designed for various groups of students.   Many of our students are involved as EMHC and readers in the community. Many students participate in mission trips (Rosebud, Guatemala, Hati) and go on the national March for Life each year (80 last year).

 

  • Meeting each student where they are:
    • Skutt Catholic offers 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.
    • The Council for American Private Education 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 of experience, and 85% of our educators hold a Master’s Degree. For comparison’s sake, the state average for educators with a Master’s Degree is 45%.
  • Last year Skutt Catholic students: 
    • Earned $17.2 million in college scholarships
    • Achieved three perfect 36 ACT scores
    • Achieved one perfect SAT score
    • Earned eight National Merit Scholarship recognitions, including four finalists
    • Won four Nebraska State Athletic Association Championships, the NSAA Cup* and the Omaha World-Herald All Sports Award**
    • Volunteered over 14,000 hours
  • Our students join us from 31 different schools, representing 27 zip codes and 25 Catholic parishes.  Nearly 25% attended public school before joining Skutt Catholic, and 10% of the school population is non-Catholic.

 

  • Brief Activities History 
    • 72 state championships and 40 state runner-up trophies since 1998
    • Skutt Catholic has won the Nebraska “All Sports” award six out of the last ten years
    • Skutt Catholic has won six NSAA U.S. Cellular Cups in the past ten years, which is awarded based on all sports and activity performance
    • Five NE Gatorade “Athletes of the Year” – three in Soccer, one in Softball and one in Volleyball
    • Athletes have achieved scholarships at Division 1, 2 and NAIA level
    • More scholar-athletes honored by the Greater Omaha Sports Committee in the past six years than nearly all other high schools, public or private

    • Recent Top 25 national rankings earned by Volleyball, Boys Soccer, Wrestling, Mock Trial, and Robotics
    • A silver medal earned by an SC student in the National Scholastic Art Awards Competition held at Carnegie Hall in New York City
