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.

NC will hold our annual Food Drive November 30th through December 4th.  There will be boxes to drop off items at both school buildings.

Sacred Heart Stewards

Sacred Heart Parish is using the grace of our Renewal Year to advance the mission of our parish which is to become Disciples at Home in the Heart of Jesus Christ. Stewardship is a way of life by which a willing follower of Jesus acknowledges everything as a gift from God and then uses those gifts for God’s glory and the good of our neighbor. Father Andrews started a BLOG for the renewal process which has been renamed to Sacred Heart Stewards and now this blog will continue to be used as a tool to help us see the beauty of living this way.  

Sacred Heart Stewards


Family Stewardship is an invitation to EVERY school family at Norfolk Catholic to become engaged in our School Community.  You can read all about it by clicking HERE.
