Setting you on the right path to a great career

Roncalli Catholic High School is the first Catholic High school in Omaha to offer Career Academy Courses to students.

Whether students are seeking college preparatory courses or an alternative career path, Roncalli Catholic offers innovative programs to help uncover and discover the full potential of everyone. Each student has many abilities and talents, and we give them the courage to follow the right path toward their unique future. While the college preparatory curriculum at Roncalli Catholic prepares students to be successful at a four-year college or university, we also meet the high demand for alternative educational and career opportunities.

In partnership with Metro Community College, the Career Academy is designed to provide high school juniors and seniors with opportunities to explore a variety of career fields such as nursing, civil engineering, theater technology, architecture, welding, information technology, auto mechanics, and many others. Students can use this opportunity to gain credits toward an associate’s degree or certificate in these fields while still in high school.

With the help of a generous donation from an alumnus, Roncalli Catholic is happy to be able to offer students the opportunity to take these college level courses at a reduced cost, or no cost at all. This provides our students a real jumpstart on their future careers. Available funding will be divided by the number of students who are accepted to the program, up to full paid tuition. There are many ways to provide access to this program at little or no cost to our students.
