YOU have the opportunity to impact educational freedom in Nebraska – AND benefit the North Platte Catholic Schools – AND reduce your income tax liability! Win-Win-Win!

Opportunity Scholarships of Nebraska (OSN) is a scholarship-granting organization that allows taxpayers to claim non-refundable income tax credits of up to 50% of your state income tax liability. You can then choose to have that money designated for the North Platte Catholic Schools. So, the choice for all of us is… Would you rather see 50% of your tax liability benefit students at the North Platte Catholic Schools, or see 100% of it go into the State coffers?

If an individual has a state income tax liability of $100,000 and contributes $50,000 to OSN, they will receive a $50,000 tax credit, thus reducing their tax liability to $50,000.


ATTENTION PARENTS! Your child may be eligible for a Nebraska Opportunity Scholarship!

If you have a student entering kindergarten or 9th grade, you are eligible to apply. Students transferring into NPCS from other schools are also eligible to apply.

Opportunity Scholarships of Nebraska

Nebraska families can now express interest in applying for an opportunity scholarship through Opportunity Scholarships of Nebraska (OSN), a statewide scholarship granting organization.

OSN has launched its website, www.nebraskaopportunity.org, where parents can fill out an eligibility survey and sign up to receive news and updates about the application process.

OSN will award scholarships to eligible students and families in 2024 in accordance with the Opportunity Scholarships Act. The Opportunity Scholarships Act, LB753, was passed earlier this year by a supermajority of Nebraska state lawmakers and signed into law by Governor Jim Pillen. Scholarships are funded by tax credit contributions, which taxpayers can apply for beginning in January 2024.

OSN is 501(c)(3) nonprofit and a scholarship granting organization approved by the Nebraska Department of Revenue. OSN’s Board of Directors represents a statewide coalition of education freedom supporters and is co-chaired by Rick Bettger of Omaha and Kim Schroll of North Platte.

“Nebraska kids, especially those from lower-income families, need more educational options and hope for the future,” Bettger said. “I have personally seen many young lives changed because of a scholarship to a school that fits that child best. That’s our goal at Opportunity Scholarships of Nebraska – to empower parents to choose the best school for their children.”

Schroll agreed.

“Income level and zip code should not limit a child’s educational potential,” she said. “Many families in Nebraska are asking for more options but don’t think they can afford them. Through Opportunity Scholarships of Nebraska, we will serve families across the state from Omaha to Scottsbluff and everywhere in between.”

Jeremy Ekeler, formerly of the Nebraska Catholic Conference, is now executive director for Opportunity Scholarships of Nebraska.

“This transformational scholarship program is common sense, and education freedom is quickly becoming the standard across the country,” he said. “The reason is simple: every child learns differently. At OSN, we are excited to engage families and accompany them through the scholarship application process.”

Hello NPCS Families! 
As many of you know, our Activities Department relies heavily on volunteers. We use families to help run concessions and gate so that all the money goes towards activities for our students. We ask that each family in grades 7-12 work at least 3 activities throughout the year. This can be either concessions OR gate, or both! This can be one parent, or both! Families in grade K-6 are still welcome to work, but it is not yet a requirement. 
Please use the links below to sign up. -If you signed up in person at registration days, please double check your dates on the links below and write them down :)
These links will also be posted under the NEWS section on Sycamore as well as on our NPCS Facebook page. 
We are so thankful for our community of families here at NPCS and appreciate your willingness to help make our activities run smoothly.
