Life at Prep
At Prep, we make Freshmen feel welcome. Before he even begins his first day of school, each Freshman is "adopted" by a Big Brother - a Senior who helps them through registration and student orientation. Big Brothers provide support all year long and are connections to many young men for years to come.
Our Freshman Advisory Program meets on a regular basis for discussions on topics that include decision-making, study skills, time management and alcohol and drug abuse. Special social events for Freshmen help break the ice. For example, welcome dances are held during the summer and at the beginning of the school year, as well as a separate Freshman homecoming, Christmas and Spring dances.
Creighton Prep, like all Jesuit high schools, seeks to produce graduates who are intellectually competent, open to growth, religious, loving and committed to doing justice. With this goal in mind, we are enthusiastic about recruiting and retaining a diverse student body that better prepares students to work in an increasingly multi-cultural world - one in which local, national and international tensions are often grounded in cultural, religious or linguistic differences.
Our diversity initiatives and programs challenge the school community to embrace the richness in human diversity and foster the development of global citizens.
Freshman Retreat each year is a life-changing experience for many students, bringing them closer to God and to their classmates. After Freshman year, students can choose from a variety of retreats of different lengths and formats as they complete the three retreats required for graduation. Upperclassmen can apply for coveted spots to serve as leaders of retreats for younger students. Through Campus Ministry, students have the opportunity to participate in liturgies, prayer services and service events.
