Diverse Learning Needs

DePaul College Prep provides a supportive, inclusive education where we all work together to help diverse learners achieve academic success. Students and staff provide a warm, welcoming and inviting learning environment. This strong sense of community builds self-esteem and confidence.

Learning accommodations are tailored to the individual student. We have a Learning Specialist team who works with families to determine the best approach in many, but not all, cases. Because there are limits to the resources we have, we are unable to serve all students.

Some of the strategies that we have used in the past include:

  • Extending time for tests and semester exams
  • Reserving preferential classroom seating
  • Teaching better strategies of organizing homework and studying
