Welcome to Norfolk Catholic School

Norfolk Catholic School offers instruction for Pre-K through 12th Grade and operates under the auspices of Sacred Heard Parish within the Archdiocese of Omaha, Nebraska. The Elementary and High School buildings are located on one central campus on West Madison Avenue.  Norfolk Catholic School was established in 1926 initially offering only Grades 1 through 8 and eventually expanded to serve the growing educational and spiritual needs of the parish.  Today, Norfolk Catholic School serves a student population of approximately 600.  The school’s mission is to enable students to live their Catholic Faith and to achieve academic success. The school community is an integral part of the Catholic Church’s mission to proclaim the gospel, build faith communities, offer service to others and the celebrate through worship.  The school’s Catholic identity is strengthened by an integrated curriculum rooted in Gospel values and teachings. A positive school climate is established through the creation of a Christian environment that actively involves students, teacher, parents and community members in recognizing and respecting individual differences.

At Sacred Heart Parish and Norfolk Catholic School, we have established a “Wish List”. As the holidays approach, please consider helping fill one of these important wishes. Also, a friendly reminder as we approach tax season….ALL charitable gifts to your parish/schools are tax deductible.

Click HERE for an on-going listing of items that are wished for, but not included in our budget.


The year is quickly coming to an end and 2015 will be here before we know it! Many times we get caught up in the Holiday Season and planning for the next year, and we forget about making year-end gifts to Sacred Heart Parish and/or Norfolk Catholic School. Your gifts - large or small - are important to our mission of forming disciples.
There are many ways you can make a gift before the end of the year that will provide you with valuable benefits and help Sacred Heart Parish further the on-going work in our church community.

Click HERE for more information on year end giving.


Please help us reach our goal by making your gift TODAY!
