We invite you to see and experience DePaul College Prep for yourself - observe academics in the classroom, meet new friends and peers with similar interests and learn about DePaul Prep's exciting clubs and sports teams.
8th grade students are welcome to visit DePaul College Prep during the fall semester (from September 5 –December 11, 2018) and 7th grade students are welcome during the spring semester (January 10 –May 15, 2018).
How it Works
Students will be paired with a DePaul Prep Student Ambassador, one with whom the student shares common interests. You may also request a student that you know; please indicate the request on the form. This does not guarantee a shadow day with that particular student based on daily schedules but we will try to accommodate when possible.
A student can shadow any day of the week that DePaul College Prep has classes, except Wednesdays. Check with your elementary school to see if they have a specific day scheduled for students to shadow high schools.
Shadow days begin at 8:00 a.m. and end at 2:30 p.m. unless there is a special schedule for the day. Shadows will be given a voucher to use in the Student Cafeteria to purchase a lunch.
What to Wear
DePaul College Prep maintains a uniform dress code. We ask that you please wear your grammar school uniform. If your school does not require a uniform please wear:
Boys: Dress pants, dress shoes and a collared shirt. Polo style shirts are acceptable.
Girls: Dress pants or dress skirt and dress shoes.
Absolutely no jeans, gym shoes, t-shirts, sweat pants, sweat shirts, sleeveless or mid-drift tops allowed. Shadows will not be allowed to attend classes if they are inappropriately dressed.
