Principal's Message


Welcome Back!


 It’s good to have the kids back in school. Getting ready for them is almost more work than it is once they get here. I’m sure the teachers are glad to have them back because it gets me out of their hair. I had them in a lot of meetings this year before the kids even got to school. It reminded me of a boss I once had who told me, “We’re going to keep having these meetings until we find out why no work is getting done!” It’s not a good sign when you catch yourself doing the same things that used to annoy you.

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,
