Several faculty members have been recognized as National Catholic Education Association Distinguished Teachers and were recipients of the Archdiocese of Omaha Outstanding Teacher Award. Eight former St. Cecilia faculty members have gone on to be principals at other Catholic schools. An outstanding support staff completes the St. Cecilia Team.
