Roncallli Catholic has so much to offer students. I could go on and on about the AP classes, honors classes, the low teacher to student ratio, the high ACT test scores, the graduation rate, the tuition assistance, etc...but instead I will tell you that Roncallli Catholic is an incredibly warm, welcoming, family-like environment. As soon as you walk through the doors, you get a sense of community. I couldn't be happier to be an alumnus who us now sending my third child to RCHS. My kids have all become successful from the quality, faith-based education they received at Roncallli. As a parent, I could have sent them to any school...and Omaha has very good schools, but Roncallli feels like home. It is a place where each kid can get involved in whatever they want to and feel pride in what they do. We are the Pride. The Crimson Pride!!

Roncalli Catholic has been instrumental in providing a faith-based education for our daughter. When deciding on where to send our daughter, it was extremely important that she attend a high school that would teach and live by the same Christian values we teach in our home. Roncalli fosters an environment that puts a focus on being Christ Centered Leaders for Life giving every student the opportunity to deepen their faith while at the same time expanding their knowledge in a multitude of subjects. Roncalli offers nationally accredited college preparatory curriculum with dual credit, as well as Advanced Placement, honors and ACT preparatory courses. They also have a college-style media center and S.T.E.A.M. lab that my husband and I were extremely impressed by. Another very important benefit of Roncalli Catholic is their smaller class sizes and because of that, students are getting more attention from their teachers and also have a greater opportunity to participate in programs, clubs or athletics. Our daughter is not just a name or a face in the crowd. At Roncalli she is part of an extended family and is treated and loved as such. The teachers, staff and coaches at Roncalli Catholic are genuinely interested in what is best for the students. They truly care & want to see the students succeed and grow. It brings us great peace knowing our daughter is thriving, learning, growing and happy at a school that she truly loves.
