Saint Columbkille Catholic School, Papillion, Nebraska

Principal's Message


Catholic Schools Week

When my public school friends ask me about Catholic Schools Week the best comparison I can give them is that it is kind of like homecoming week in a small town school. There are activities everyday all week long and we celebrate who we are as a school and what we have achieved and are striving to achieve. During the small town homecoming week the entire community comes out for the pep rally, the bonfire, the skits, the homecoming parade, etc.  Read more...


Saint Columbkille Catholic School is a member of the National Catholic Educational Association and we are accredited by the State of Nebraska. 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.
