From Our President
Welcome to DePaul College Prep where we pride ourselves on providing a challenging Catholic college prep education for young women and men. Our academic partnership with DePaul University, our dedicated faculty, innovative teaching and learning curriculum and our welcoming community of students combine to create an environment that encourages intellectual curiosity and values each student. DePaul Prep offers college prep, AP, Honors and International Baccalaureate classes on campus and dual enrollment classes at DePaul University. DePaul Prep also emphasizes the importance of social and emotional wellness and how it enhances learning for all students.
DePaul Prep is a community of faith. As a Catholic and Vincentian high school, sponsored by the Congregation of the Mission, our students and faculty respond to the central question posed by St. Vincent de Paul more than three hundred years ago: “What Must Be Done?” This inquiry and our collective responses to it are central to who we are and what we represent.
DePaul Prep’s four core values: Faith, Respect, Excellence and Service are intimately connected to each student’s experience as a member of our school community. I am proud that the students and faculty of DePaul Prep are guided by faith, steeped in academic rigor and committed to service for the betterment of our society.
We are proud to be All In for DePaul Prep, and we educate students who are prepared and eager to be lifelong learners and successful leaders, professionals, and entrepreneurs. As an urban, Catholic and Vincentian high school, we embrace the diversity and beauty of our extended classroom – the City of Chicago.
As you look through the resources on our website, I hope you are able to sense the energy, community and spirit of DePaul College Prep. We extend a warm welcome to you. Join us as we embrace our bright future.
St. Vincent de Paul, pray for us!
St. Louise de Marillac, pray for us!
