St. Barnabas Classical Academy is a Catholic school in Omaha, Nebraska providing students with an education in the classical liberal arts. We offer a school culture enriched by the devotion of families to the intellectual and moral formation of their youngest members.
Our faculty, working with parents and continually drawing on the wellspring of faith and reason, seek not only to equip our students with the knowledge needed to excel in life, but to nourish our students with the love of wisdom and virtue needed to live well. Our mission is to educate the whole person in all things good, true, and beautiful, in order that they may be led out of themselves to their noble end, namely, to glorify God in all things.
St. Barnabas was one of the most prominent disciples of the early Church. He was a missionary who traveled through Greece and Turkey with St. Paul to evangelize Gentiles.
Our crest is divided into four parts by a fletched cross, arrows pointing outward, recalling Barnabas’ missionary zeal. Blue and white are the sacred colors traditionally associated with the Blessed Virgin Mary, colors that remind us of Mary’s purity, her faithfulness, and her privileged role in salvation history.
