Student Support Services
Your solid support system is ignited the minute you walk through the doors of Creighton Prep on your first day of school freshman year, and it endures until the very last.
Based on the Jesuit core value of "cura personalis" or "care for the whole person," Creighton Prep offers a 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.
