Consortium Board of Directors

The six Consortium schools are collaborative, diverse and innovative. Our board of directors is no different. Their collective prior involvement with school boards and Archdiocese of Omaha committees, as well as their professional experience, all help make the Consortium's success possible.

A message from our Board Chair

"We are committed to:
-increasing transparency from our schools with data-driven programs to allow for more reporting on the outcome of the investments that support Catholic education;
-introducing new instructional models to deliver a premier academic experience for our students"
