Based on the Jesuit core value of "cura personalis" or "care for the whole person," Creighton Prep now offers an expanded and comprehensive student support services program. These specialized support services will:

  • Help students succeed in the classroom.

  • Help students and families navigate the college admissions and scholarship application processes.

  • Help Prep meet a wider range of students’ emotional, psychological, social and socioeconomic needs.

Take a look at the full range of support services offered along with a description of the types of assistance available. If you or your son has questions or a particular need, please contact the corresponding team member.
