Comparing Tests


This week we are administering the Terra Nova tests to students in grades 3-8. These tests are required by the archdiocese for all students in grades 3-7. We have elected to also give them to our 8th graders since the EXPLORE test is no longer available.



Saint Columbkille Catholic School is a member of the National Catholic Educational Association. We are also accredited by the State of Nebraska, and in addition to that, we are an AdvancED accredited school. We have been providing a quality Catholic education to children (grades K-8) in the Papillion area since 1916. We are a ministry of Saint Columbkille Parish, and our mission is to help our students grow in spirit, mind, and body as disciples of Christ.

Towards this end, it is our aim to provide a caring and loving community atmosphere in which gospel principles are modeled by adults and other students, taught daily, experienced in liturgy, and practiced by the students in mission and service activities.

As an educational institution, we are committed to using all of our resources to help each child develop to his or her full potential by providing a variety of learning experiences.

If you would like more information about registration or would like to schedule a visit with a tour of the school, please call the school office at 402-339-8706.

Yours in Christ,

This one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the heavenly call of God in Christ Jesus.
