SHADOW Days

The best way to learn if Creighton Prep is right for you is to experience Prep in person during one of our Shadow Days. Any 7th or 8th-grade prospective or accepted student is invited to spend the day with a current Creighton Prep student. See what a day in the life of a Junior Jay entails, from start to finish -- and lunch is on us!
