Why Mount Michael?
The boarding program at Mount Michael has helped me develop into a better student and a better individual. The camaraderie you feel here has definitely made my years at Mount Michael memorable. I have no doubt that the things I’ve learned both inside and outside the classroom will help me be successful in college and beyond.

We love attracting students from Mount Michael because they make great contributions to our campus academically, socially, and spiritually. They come well prepared to manage the academic rigors of Creighton because of the solid foundation provided by the challenging college prep curriculum. They have also been taught to adapt and transition well into college life. What more could a University hope for?

Vice Provost for Enrollment Management
The best thing about Mount Michael is that the students care a lot about their education. For example, over the years that I have been a coach, I find it not uncommon for students to be discussing novels, physics problems, world issues, etc. on the way home from a competition. Parents also care a lot about their son’s education and are here to help students and Mount Michael become better.

Are Mount Michael grads different from the average college student? You had better believe it. I've been teaching college economics for 20 years and I get students from many different disciplines, socio-economic backgrounds, and from all over the world. What makes Mount Michael students special goes beyond their grades.
It's about their attitude toward learning. I'm sure I'll find an exception one day, but until then I can fully profess that Mount Michael grads come to class prepared and take ownership of their performance without making excuses. I was so impressed with them that both my sons attended and graduated from Mount Michael."

A favorite family quote is, "You cannot be what you cannot see." Through its structured, supportive learning environment, Mount Michael helps each young man create his own vision for a bright, fulfilling future. With the offering of smaller class sizes and a variety of clubs, sports and activities, each boy's unique talents and gifts can be revealed, allowing him to play to his strengths and to feel successful.”
