V.J. and Angela Skutt Catholic High School, located in Omaha, Nebraska, United States, is a Catholic, college-preparatory high school established in 1993. It was named in honor of V.J. and Angela Skutt, the longtime Chairman of Mutual of Omaha and his wife, who were prominent donors toward the school's construction. The school has a 1:16 teacher-student ratio.[3] It is located in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Omaha. In 2012, it was announced that the Suburban Omaha-based Catholic School was one of only 50 private schools nationally to earn the prestigious title of "Blue Ribbon School."
