Welcome to St. Cecilia Cathedral School!
At St. Cecilia Cathedral School, you will find a welcoming close-knit community that is committed to the Catholic faith and to helping each student reach his or her highest potential. From our student mentorship program to serving in the community, our students have many opportunities to become leaders, both in and out of the classroom.
We are located on the ten acre campus of St. Cecilia Cathedral, the cathedral church of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Omaha. Rooted in the Dominican tradition of faith, morals and discipline, our school celebrates diversity by representing denominations and ethnic backgrounds from the Omaha area.
St. Cecilia Cathedral School is the only Omaha grade school that has received the Creighton Presidential Medallion Award. This prestigious award highlighted our stable leadership, high academic standards, strong parental involvement, and unwavering commitment to the Gospel for over 100 years.
Registration for the 2019-2020 school year is now available online. If you have not visited the school yet, please schedule a meeting and tour with our principal, Mrs. Pick at 402-556-6655 prior to completing the registration information.
Here are some tips to help you through the online registration process:
There are three forms to fill out (one of the three will have to be filled out separately for each student).
The forms will take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete from start to finish. Once you begin, you will NOT be able to save and return at a later time to complete the process. Please set aside enough time to complete the forms in one sitting.
You should be able to fill out the forms and sign the documents electronically from any laptop, desktop computer or smart device (phone, iPad, tablet).
If you do not have computer or internet access at home, we invite you to come to school and use one of the school computers for registration in our computer lab.
When the forms have been completed and the $200 registration fee (per family) has been submitted, you will be notified by school administration that your child(ren) are be accepted for enrollment for the 2019-2020 school year.
Deadline for 2019-2020 registration is May 31, 2019.
Please have sacrament dates/locations handy as those are asked of you on the forms.
The three forms for registration include:
New families also need to complete the Omaha Public Schools registration form ( not available in an online format). You can fill this out and drop it off in the school office, mail it in, or scan it and email it to us.
