Founded in 1993, in Omaha, Nebraska, Skutt Catholic High School is an Archdiocesan, coeducational, college-preparatory school for grades 9-12. The mission of forming and educating young men and women to become Christian leaders who empower others, promote justice and initiate change, leads students to practice moral behaviors based on Catholic beliefs, strive for intellectual excellence, and demonstrate an understanding of self and society, while developing personal integrity.

Skutt Catholic High School has developed a comprehensive college-preparatory curriculum, including more fine and performing art courses than any private school in the state. Course offerings include 25 dual-enrollment courses and 17 Advanced Placement courses. In 2021, the average composite ACT score for the top half of graduating seniors was over 29.

Embracing the concept of the 4 C's of education to cultivate the skills of creativity, communication, collaboration, and critical thinking, Skutt Catholic stresses the importance of preparing students to thrive in a modern, connected society. All staff are required to become Level I Google Certified Educators, with weekly training sessions to integrate project-based learning and technology innovation in the classroom.

At Skutt Catholic, students are encouraged to soar beyond the classroom, with 87 percent of students participating in at least one extracurricular activity. Skutt Catholic athletic and activity programs have received local, regional, and national recognition, including 82 Nebraska state championships since 1998.
