This year instead of class retreats, 10th and 11th grade students will be offered a range of retreat opportunities to choose from. Each student must attend one of the following retreats offered during the school year as part of fulfilling their Religion class requirements. To sign up for a retreat, fill out the Google registration form that corresponds with the retreat you’d like to attend. If you choose a retreat offered through the Archdiocese or the March for Life, you will need to complete additional registration forms provided at a later date. 

Note: Some retreats may have a max capacity and they are first come, first serve. If your first choice of retreat has already reached max capacity, you will be placed on a different one. We will do our best to prioritize your preferences.

  • Location: Omaha

Some opportunities I have been given as a student at Scotus are the ability to express my faith freely in school, and access to classes that prepare me for college. The faculty at Scotus all strive to make the transition to college and decision of a major stress free with the numerous of unique opportunities, as well.

-Mason Gonka, Senior, Scotus Central Catholic

I have received countless opportunities to better myself at Scotus through the teachers, academics, and other extracurriculars I am involved in. Through these, I have undertaken many leadership roles that will benefit me in the future as I go onto college and into the workforce. I know that I am speaking for everyone when I say that while you attend Scotus, there are high expectations for you. Teachers, coaches, and the administration all push you to be the very best version of yourself in every aspect of life. Because of Scotus, I was able to attend faith-related events such as Steubenville, JC Camp, Connected and GodTeens, which has changed my life for the better and gave me an appreciation for my faith that I would not have had otherwise.

-Sofia Karges, Junior, Scotus Central Catholic

I love St. Bonaventure because I get to learn about God and pray each day. I also get to make new friends!

-Dreya Fiala, 6th grade, St. Bonaventure Elementary

I love St. Anthony's Elementary because the students and staff are all welcoming and friendly. The teachers also push us to do the best we can on projects and assignments. We also learn about Jesus and our faith every day and go to Mass on Fridays.

-Rhegan Bowns, 6th Grade, St. Anthony's Elementary
