A cigar box. This simple tool, which Fr. Sullivan used as a makeshift bank, became the cornerstone of his loyalty and commitment to Prep students. Resolved to never let a family's finances keep a young man from attending Prep, Fr. Sullivan used the cigar box to collect what tuition he could and to pay what obligations he could. By the grace of God, there was always enough.
Prep continues to commit to its students in much the same way. In an effort to remain true to its mission of keeping Prep affordable to all who qualify, each student is provided with a tuition subsidy of $5,900. For 52 percent of Prep students, that is not enough, so Prep does more. Please help us continue his tradition.
Members of the Henry L. Sullivan, SJ Leadership Society receive a pass for free admission to all Prep-hosted athletic and co-curricular activity events. In addition to the event pass, members of the President's Leadership Circle are invited to a private gathering hosted by Fr. Tom Neitzke, SJ, president of Creighton Prep.
