There are many factors that go into your decision to attend Creighton Prep. Having everything you need to be successful not only includes having all the academic resources you’d expect to find at a leading boys college preparatory school. It also means ensuring that Prep remains accessible and affordable to anyone in our community who wants this formative experience. 

That’s why Prep offers the ability to reduce the cost of tuition through our Income-Based Tuition Model. We also offer more than 30 scholarships – more than any other school in Omaha.


The Creighton Prep Income-Based Tuition Model is designed to align the cost of tuition with the family budget. It offers adjustments based on annual family income – beginning with $50,000 or less, up to $225,000. 

In addition, adjustments can be made based on the size of your family and other circumstances. Our FAQs can help answer any questions you may have about Income-Based Tuition, documentation required, factors that impact tuition adjustments and other considerations.
