Theology

The Theology Department offers classes that bring DePaul Prep’s Catholic identity alive and helps students arrive at a mature, living, and vital faith. Theology classes present opportunities for students to develop an intellectual understanding of the life and message of Jesus Christ while simultaneously encouraging students to apply the teachings of our Catholic faith in their lives by embodying DePaul Prep’s core values of Faith, Respect, Excellence, Service, and Health.

The Catholic identity of DePaul Prep is further supported through the Office of Mission & Ministry in partnership with students, faculty, staff and parents through retreats, liturgies and reflections which reinforce the tenets of our faith.
