Character

V.J. and Angela Skutt Catholic High School seeks to create excellence in a Catholic high school environment–one that is characterized by a group of parents, educational professionals, and community volunteers who are united by a religious faith and a shared belief in the value of formal education. These parents, educators, and volunteers combine to provide resources, leadership, and the purposeful focus necessary to create and maintain an educational entity which achieves excellence in the following areas:

  • Clear instruction in Catholic doctrine and Christian moral values, based on the Gospel and Church teaching.
  • A rigorous intellectual pursuit of cultural wisdom and academic knowledge which includes a familiar expertise with scientific and technological advances.
  • Development of the whole person: spiritual, intellectual, aesthetic, emotional, physical, and social.
  • Experience of a Christian community bonded together in friendship,
  • respect, trust, love, and forgiveness.
  • Awareness of the divine and spiritual through daily prayer and reverential celebration of the sacraments and devotions of the Church.

Individual and group activities which flow from a sense of social responsibility and concern for the welfare of others, especially those burdened by poverty, illness, alienation, and physical and emotional weakness

HISTORY

V.J. and Angela Skutt Catholic High School began operations in August of 1993. The school came into being as a result of the concerted effort of all the Catholics in the Omaha Metropolitan Area, in the years of 1990 to 1993, to raise $25,000,000 through the Archbishop’s Campaign for Educational Excellence. $10,000,000 of that figure was set aside for the construction of our new school; $6,000,000 was returned to parishes to assist in the funding of their parochial schools; and $4,000,000 was given to the existing eight Catholic high schools to further their financial strength. The Cosgriff Company of Omaha managed the successful campaign. The DLR Group of Omaha designed the school and the Kiewit Construction Company served as the general contractor. Construction of Skutt Catholic High School began in the spring of 1991. The school is named in honor of two of Omaha’s most prominent and dedicated citizens, V.J. and Angela Skutt. Mr. Skutt served for many years as the CEO of Mutual of Omaha. He and his wife Angie were tireless in their volunteer efforts for Catholic education and other services for Omaha’s youth.

The school has emphasized academic excellence from the very beginning. The demanding curriculum prepares students for admission to the best colleges in the country. A full range of athletic and fine arts activities have always been offered as well, and participation in state level competition is a frequent occurrence.

The strong emphasis on religious values and the Catholic tradition have helped to mold a school culture that is recognized for its civility, orderliness, good manners, and attention to the service of others.

skyhawk

A unique feature of the school is its focused commitment to the teaching and modeling of critical thinking skills and self-discipline skills. A required freshman level course, known as Character Skills, combines research based programs in critical thinking and self-discipline to offer students a dynamic curriculum which enhances the quality of learning throughout the school environment.

The school has shown a steady increase in numbers each year and now serves 700 students, grades nine through twelve.

The SkyHawk is so named because it soars higher than others of its species. It is a messenger calling others to reach their highest potential and be closer to God. The SkyHawk always exhibits the wisdom of learning, self-discipline and concern for others. It is viewed by peers as a leader and protector. A powerful sense of humility and justice guide the SkyHawk in action. The SkyHawk makes decisions carefully through prudent use of intellect, will, and emotion for the benefit of others. While non-predatory, the SkyHawk is a fierce, but honorable competitor. Opponents of the SkyHawk know that it will never quit and that it can win graciously, yet lose a contest with dignity. The SkyHawk loves the beauty and abundant natural resources of its Nebraska habitat. Its dominant symbolic color, green, represents the hope that all creatures will be good stewards of the abundant gifts that God has given us. The color black, the presence of all color, signifies that the SkyHawk embraces the diversity of all persons and strives toward the goal of global unity and respect for the dignity of human life. Its third symbolic color, silver, represents the shining light of the salvation promise that God has made to us.

QUICK FACTS

In the past seven years, Skutt Catholic students have earned $65 million in college scholarships, 92% of which were academic scholarships. Forty students have been recognized by the National Merit Scholarship Program, and two 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. Furthermore, SC offers fourteen Advanced Placement courses and thirteen dual enrollment courses with area colleges. The dual enrollment courses have been determined by area colleges to be equivalent to a college level course, thus college credit is offered to those students who take the courses at SC! 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 U.S. Department of Education Blue Ribbon Award. 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. More than 325 private schools registered to apply for this award, and Skutt Catholic was one of the top 50 to emerge from the pile of 325+. Skutt Catholic is the only school in Nebraska, with more than 400 students, to earn this national award in the past decade. 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 17.2 years experience, and nearly 70% of our educators hold a Master’s Degree. For comparison’s sake, the state average for educators with a Master’s Degree is 45%. Skutt Catholic also has excellent retention of faculty members which demonstrates the commitment of the teachers to your children and to the school.

Skutt Catholic’s athletic and extracurricular program is among the most successful in the state as evidenced by the following:

  • 51 state championships and 23 state runner up trophies in the past decade
  • Skutt Catholic has won the Nebraska “All Sports” award seven out of the last nine years
  • Skutt Catholic recently won its 4th NSAA US Cellular Cup (out of the six years the Cup has been awarded), which is awarded based on all sports athletic performance
  • Three NE Gatorade “Athletes of the Year” in Soccer in the last six year
  • Athletes have achieved scholarships at the 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.
  • Five consecutive Mock Trial State Championships and a 3rd place finish at Nationals in 2013
  • Back to Back to Back Speech State Championships
  • Recent Top 25 national rankings earned by Boys Soccer, Wrestling, Mock Trial, and the Robotics program
  • National Tournament Sportsmanship Award Winner – Robotics
  • Three NSAA “Believer and Achiever Award” winners in the last five years
  • A silver medal earned by an SC student in the National Scholastic Art Awards Competition held at Carnegie Hall in New York City.
  • Award winning band, choir, fine art, and drama programs

ACADEMICS

Starting next year, Skutt Catholic High School will integrate the use of iPads into its classrooms.  The decision to implement iPads results from many months of research, input from professional educators, peer schools, Apple Education representatives, and feedback from students, parents, and faculty. Knowledge cannot reach its full potential in the isolation of a classroom. The iPad technology brings the world into each classroom, enhancing the relevancy and effectiveness of our educational programs. As a result, Skutt Catholic will better serve our students in the following ways:

  1. Research indicates that students, teachers, and parents are more engaged in the educational process which is positively correlated to student achievement;
  2. Teachers will be able to differentiate instruction to better meet the needs of all students;
  3. Students will be more prepared to meet the technological demands of higher education

To accomplish these goals, internet ready mobile devices such as the iPad offers our students:

  1. Access via our wireless network to the Internet – an invention so profound that we are entering a new age of learning;
  2. Access to mobile computing power for engaging in the type of high-quality, data-intensive work our society demands;
  3. Access to social media so that students are creators of, and not just consumers of, the Intellectual conversations of our age;
  4. Access to local storage of online books, databases, textbooks, and multimedia files so they can carry their studies with them in a variety of engaging formats; and
  5. A personalized computing device that ensures equitable access as well as options for personal customization, integration and responsibility.

We are very excited about the implementation of iPads at Skutt Catholic High School. With this new technology initiative, Skutt Catholic will continue to provide a relevant faith based and cutting edge education.

Sincerely,

Rob Meyers
Principal

School Improvement Process:  Professional Learning Communities (PLCs)

Skutt Catholic is certainly a learning community – a place where students & teachers, families & friends, community members & visitors feel a tangible sense of caring & welcome, faith & learning, excitement & success. However, there is always room to improve, there are always ways to grow and become stronger. For this reason Skutt Catholic has embraced the Professional Learning Community (PLC) model of school improvement, developed by acclaimed educators and researchers Rebecca DuFour, Richard DuFour & Robert Marzano.

The PLC model can be described as a return to good old common sense. In our current day of constant educational reform and persistent debate on innumerable theories of learning, the PLC school improvement model asks schools to center their attention on four very tangible questions regarding student learning:

  1. What knowledge and skills should every student acquire as a result of this school, this department, this course, this unit of instruction, and this lesson?
  2. How will we know when each student has acquired the essential knowledge and skills?
  3. How will we respond when some students do not learn?
  4. How will we respond when some students have clearly achieved the intended outcomes?

Working as small collaborative groups during every late start school day, Skutt Catholic faculty members have started the process of defining and refining essential learning outcomes. In future years each PLC will establish valid internal assessment systems to measure student learning and will create systems of enrichment and extension for students who require a boost or an added challenge in order to meet their potential.

In addition to this important curriculum work, Skutt Catholic has also organized every staff member into PLC groups to study and enhance the school’s Vision, Mission and daily practice. PLCs dedicated to major components of Skutt Catholic such as: Catholic Identity, Vision and Mission, Teaching and Learning, Classroom Management and Discipline, Recruitment, and Technology research best practice and develop targeted action plans for improvement.

PLC literature states, “Working together to build shared knowledge on the best way to achieve goals and meet the needs of clients is exactly what professionals in any field are expected to do.” Through our efforts as a Professional Learning Community, the faculty and staff of Skutt Catholic High School embrace the challenge of improving our ability to meet the needs of our students so they can achieve their potential as students, citizens, and members of the Faith community.

历史
V.J.和安吉拉Skutt天主教高中在1993年8月开始运营。学校的成立是因为所有在奥马哈都市区的天主教徒共同努力的结果,在到1993年的1990年中,通过”大主教 教育卓越 募捐” 形式 筹款25,000,000美元。10,000,000被预留为我们的新学校的建设; 6,000,000元已回到教区,成为他们的教会学校的资助来源;和4,000,000元给现有的8个天主教高中,以增加他们的资金实力。Cosgriff公司是募捐执行者,奥马哈的DLR集团设计学校和Kiewit总部建筑公司担任总承包商。 Skutt天主教高中的建设开始于1991年春天,学校以两个奥马哈做最突出贡献的公民, VJ和安吉拉Skutt 命名。Skutt先生多年担任奥马哈互惠的首席执行官。他和他的妻子安吉为他们的天主教教育和其他服务奥马哈的青年志愿者的努力不懈地工作。学校学生每年数量稳步上升,现有700名学生,九至十二年级。
学校标志: 天鹰
天鹰是因为它翱翔比别人高而命名。它是一个信使,别人达到自己的最大潜能,并更接近上帝。天鹰总是表现出学习,自律,为别人着想。它被同龄人看作是一个领导者和保护者。谦卑和正义的强烈意识引导天鹰行动。天鹰仔细谨慎地用智惠,意志和情感为他人利益作出决定。虽然非掠夺性,天鹰是一种非常喜爱竞争而有风格的竞争对手。天鹰的对手知道,它永远不会退出,它可以赢得客客气气,但体面地输了一场比赛。天鹰热爱它的栖息地内布拉斯加州的美丽和丰富的自然资源。其主要象征性的颜色,绿色,代表着希望,所有的生物将是上帝给了我们丰富的礼物的保护人。黑色,所有色彩的存在来源,表示该天鹰包含了所有的人的多样性,努力实现全球团结和尊重人的生命尊严的目标。第三象征性的颜色,银色,代表的是神所给我们的救恩承诺闪耀着光芒。
