Tuition

A Creighton Prep education is worth so much in terms of college scholarships, character, faith and lifetime friendships. The purpose of the Income-Based Tuition model is to make Creighton Prep accessible and affordable to anyone who wants a Catholic and Jesuit education. Please reference the Income-Based Tuition scale below to determine your maximum tuition and follow the steps to submit an application.

Income figures must be supported by tax documents for the most recent year filed. We consider the following to be included in gross family income: salaries, investment income, self-employment income, social security or disability, rental income, housing allowance or assistance, income or cash distributions from LLC's, S Corporations or partnerships, retirement plan or pension distributions, child support and other income, including nontaxable income. Income will be considered prior to deductions for retirement and Health Savings Account contributions. Families with business income may be required to provide business financials in order to gain a better understanding of actual income earned from the business. Adjustments to gross income may be made for deductions reported on your tax return, such as depreciation expense, net operating losses, and self-employment taxes. Prep reserves the right to consider your future earnings potential in contrast to your most recently filed income tax return. Prep also reserves the right to consider significant liquid assets that could be drawn from to make tuition payments in excess of the amounts shown above.

When a student's parents are separated, Prep considers the financial resources of all living parents and step-parents, and any other adults living in the household in which the student resides. Tuition contracts may be arranged in a joint or separated manner, according to the family's preference.

Tuition does not include fees detailed below.

ACADEMIC SCHOLARSHIPS

Academic scholarships are awarded on many levels, with the amounts and number of scholarships determined each year based on the quality of the student’s January entrance exam test scores. We are dedicated to making an investment in qualified students, and we award more scholarships than any other school in the city, as well as the largest scholarships. 

It is highly recommended that students take the entrance exam at the school they will most likely attend in the fall if they want to qualify for academic scholarships. Students taking the test at a later make-up date cannot qualify for academic scholarships.
