A Passion For Knowledge

A Passion for Knowledge

One of the key components of Archbishop Bergan Catholic School's Mission Statement is to instill a passion for Knowledge.  From the time that a student is enrolled at the Archbishop Bergan Early Childhood Center through their graduation from Archbishop Bergan Catholic High School staff members continually challenge our students to seek life long learning.  At Bergan we have a number of unique learning opportunities that lead our students to academic achievement.

-Archbishop Bergan has a unique relationship with Midland University.  In the last three years, 90 percent of high school students have received college level credit from these two institutions. 

-Archbishop Bergan also encourages students to participate in a School-to-Career program, which partners students with a local business in their intended field of employment. 

-Archbishop Bergan Elementary utilizes an annual Terra Nova assessment that gauges a student's ability to grasp the necessary content knowledge.

-Archbishop Bergan follows the curriculum standards of the Archdiocese of Omaha Catholic Schools as well as the most recent curriculum resources available.

-Our Faculty & Staff are competent, professional, and caring people who continually seek professional development opportunities and best practices.

-Our Science program institutes a STEM program titled Project Lead the Way that allows students to work on critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity. 

-Students have the opportunity to take advanced high school level courses and Bergan utilizes our partnership with Metropolitan Community College for additional elective course work options.

-Senior students at Archbishop Bergan Catholic are required to take a Math & Science class during their senior year, whereas many other schools allow their Seniors to opt out of taking these rigorous courses during their 12th grade year.

-Archbishop Bergan Catholic Early Childhood Education Center and Pre-Kindergarten Program broadens each child’s spiritual, social, physical, intellectual, and emotional experiences to provide groundwork for future education and daily life.

-Many of our Teachers & Administration are Alumni of Archbishop Bergan Catholic School.
