Saint Columbkille Catholic School, Papillion, Nebraska



How Do We Compare?


At our last Home & School Association meeting I presented our test scores from this year. We take the Terra Nova Tests as do all the archdiocesan schools. This is a nationally normed standardized test that covers Reading, Language, Math, Science, and Social Studies. It is administered to all of our students in grades 3-8. While it’s difficult to give a thorough presentation in this short amount of space, I want to give you a general idea of how we compare.    Read more...


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.
