The mission of the Creighton Preparatory School Department of Theology is to present to students a comprehensive vision of what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ in its spiritual, liturgical, and moral dimensions.  Always conscious of our Jesuit heritage and mission, we form students in the Catholic intellectual tradition in the spirit of St. Anselm’s ‘faith seeking understanding.’  We strive to integrate the study of theology with a lived Christian faith, challenging our students to become men of character and faith who use their gifts for the good of the world. 

Departmental Themes

To develop in each student a deep, abiding faith in and relationship with Jesus Christ and response to the concomitant call to participate in the life of the Church.

To inspire the movement beyond academic excellence toward a more challenging task of conversion from selfish interest to God's interest which is characterized by a commitment to doing the work of justice.

To develop a community of faith-between students and teacher- becoming in our work, prayer, and play viable witness to the presence of God in our midst.

To promote a growth in the knowledge of and respect for other expressions of faith.

To attend to all aspects of students' growth with special care for the whole person as a physical, spiritual, intellectual, emotional and social being.

To provide concrete opportunities for students to participate in service-oriented activities as well as moments of solemn reflection to help students strike the delicate balance required of contemplatives in action.

To encourage students to stand with Jesus Christ against the often destructive elements of our modem culture.

To inspire students to become men for others, as defined by Pedro Arrupe, who refuse to accept benefits from unjust structures and move beyond simple works of mercy toward the greater goal of social transformation.
