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.

A HUB FOR SUPPORT

The Lannon Learning Commons is a physical embodiment of how we support our students, giving our professionals the ability to work with students individually and help our young men navigate the emotional and academic needs of their high school years. This 52,000-square-foot space houses essential student services, including our licensed mental health professional, director of college counseling, five guidance counselors, a learning specialist, an academic coach and our director of student outreach and advocacy.

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.
