A Nationally Recognized School
Christ the King Catholic School offers developmentally-appropriate curriculum for students from preschool through eighth grade. We are fully accredited by AdvancED, the State of Nebraska, are a member of both the Nebraska Project and Prairie Visions Consortium, and were named winner of the 1992 Nebraska Arts Council's "Governor's Arts Award" for "excellence in Arts Education."
Our school has a 50+ year tradition of providing excellence in academic and religious education. Recent renovations, such as two state of the art science labs, updated computer technology lab, art studio, library, early childhood center, and remodeled classrooms demonstrate our continued commitment to excellence.
We offer all-day Kindergarten, 3 & 4 year old preschool, and early arrival and extended-day care for the convenience of working parents.
Our curriculum integrates religious values with core academic subjects such as Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies, and also includes specialty programs such as Art, Computer Technology, Health, Library, Music, Physical Education, and Spanish. A full-time Reading Specialist works with students to provide both remedial help and enrichment opportunities.
Our outstanding faculty, many of whom have earned or are working towards postgraduate degrees, are carefully selected each year. Teachers are chosen for their sincere value and appreciation for Catholic Education.
We strive to keep class sizes small in order to enhance the learning of each student, to challenge each student to reach their highest level possible through differentiated instruction, and to provide the best opportunity for individual growth and development. The average class size at Christ the King is 18 students per class and the overall ratio of students to teachers including special subject teachers is 11 to 1. Emphasis is placed on providing on-going support, communication and encouragement to both students and parents.
