I really don't understand your question.

do you want ONLY sch1,sch2,sch3

select * from dba_users where username in ('sch1','sch2','sch3')


or do you want everything EXCEPT sch1,sch2,sch3

select * from dba_users where username NOT in ('sch1','sch2','sch3')

If you have list of owner in separate table, then you can also use

select * from dba_users where username IN (select username from another_table);

You can use NOT IN as well as required.

One minor correction to the first post.  Oracle translates object names to upper case unless you force them to case sensitive, NOT recommended, by using double quotes.

Change:
select * from dba_users where username NOT in ('sch1','sch2','sch3');

to:
select * from dba_users where username NOT in ('SCH1','SSH2','SCH3');
