Financial Assistance -
Class of 2019/Transfer Students
Financial assistance is available as follows:
- Academic Scholarships
- Archdiocesan Aid Grants
- Prep Financial Aid Grants
- Work Grants
Several Academic Scholarships are available to students based on the January Entrance Exam scores. Top scorers who take the Entrance Exam on the first day it is given will be considered for Academic Scholarships to Creighton Preparatory School. 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.
Many parishes in the Omaha area offer some financial assistance to students attending Catholic high schools. Contact your parish for information.
ARCHDIOCESAN AID GRANTS
The Archdiocese of Omaha has financial assistance available for students. Families who complete the FACTS financial aid application process and meet the income criteria set forth by the Archdiocese will be considered for financial assistance.
Note: FACTS applications submitted after January 30, 2015 will NOT be considered for Archdiocesan Aid.
PREP FINANCIAL AID GRANTS
Based on the needs of the student's family, additional financial aid grants may be available to assist with tuition costs. The average financial aid package for students attending Prep is $3,000 (which includes a Work Grant for freshmen and sophomore students.)
Here is an example:
|Financial Aid Grants||$2,500|
|Total Tuition Due||$6,050|
As far back as 1911, Prep has provided jobs at school to help students pay their tuition. Only freshmen and sophomore students who qualify for financial aid will receive a Work Grant in the form of a $1,000 credit to their tuition. The student must complete 100 hours of work at school to fulfill the Work Grant. For more information, contact Mary McGuire or 402-548-3848.
Financial Aid Application Process
Financial aid applications are due January 30, 2015. Financial information is submitted to FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment. This information is used by Creighton Prep to determine financial need and to allocate aid. There is a $30.00 application fee per family.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding financial aid or the application process, please contact Joyce Meyers at 402-548-3859 or by email: email@example.com
