Summer Course Descriptions
Academic Integrity Policy
DePaul College Prep expects all students to submit work that is entirely a result of their own effort and to pursue academic achievement with integrity. Examples of these violations include cheating, plagiarism, and obtaining and providing an unfair advantage. All instances of academic integrity at DePaul College Prep are tracked by teachers and the Dean’s Office. Violations may result in the removal from the summer school course. Removal from a course will result in zero credit and the course tuition is non-refundable.
Attendance is essential and required each day in order to successfully complete a course and receive credit. A student missing one day of a credit course is equivalent to a one week absence during the academic year. Vacation, summer employment, doctor’s appointments, or team practices cannot excuse a student from a credit course. A student may not arrive late or be dismissed early from class. If a student accumulates more than a day’s absence, the student will be dropped from the course and the tuition will not be refunded. Three tardies are equivalent to a half day absence.
A $300 non-refundable deposit is required at the time of registration for the credit courses. The $300 deposit will be applied to summer course tuition and families will be billed the balance through their FACTS account. Families will have the option to pay in full at the time of registration. The registration, deposit, or full payment will be made online.
|1.0 Credit Courses||$1,200|
Summer school courses cannot be added or dropped after the first day of classes on June 20, 2023. Tuition will not be refunded after June 20, 2023.
All high school academic courses are credit courses and will be worth 1.0 credit hours.
Homework is assigned each day and is due at the start of each class. Students should expect 1-2 hours of homework each day. Due to the pace and rigor of the courses, homework will be used to review and reinforce concepts from that day’s lessons or will serve as a preview for the next day’s lessons. Incomplete homework or late homework will not be accepted and will result in a zero.
Students’ clothing must be neat, clean, and appropriate for school. School uniform shorts (golf or Bermuda style, or longer athletic style shorts) are permitted and polo style shirts or t-shirts are permitted. Jeans, jean shorts, running shorts, tennis skirts, tank tops, or crop tops are not permitted.
A final exam will be administered on the final day of the class. All students must be present for the final exam. The final exam will be worth 10% of the final grade. Reassessment of any exams must be taken before the final exam day; they may not be taken the same day as the final exam.
All high school academic courses are subject to the DePaul College Prep grading scale. The initial grading system is numerical which then equates to a letter grade:
|A = 93-100||B+ = 87-89||C+ = 77-79||D+ = 67-69|
|A- = 90-92||B = 84-86||C = 74-76||D = 64-66|
|B- = 80-83||C- = 70-73||D- = 60-63|
|F = 0-59|
Students are advised to refer to the Student Handbook and Schoology for a detailed description of the DePaul College Prep grading system, the explanation of failing grades, and cause for the dismissal of a student for academic reasons.
Grade Point Averages
Grade point averages are weighted according to the degree of course difficulty. College Prep classes are weighted as follows: A = 4, B = 3, C = 2, and D = 1. A plus (+) adds 0.33 points (except for the grade of A) and a minus (-) subtracts 0.33 points (E.g. A grade of C+ earns 2.33 grade points and a grade of C- earns 1.67 grade points). DePaul College Prep does not include A+ in its grading system. In addition, for a grade of “C” or higher, Honors classes receive an additional 0.5 weighting and Advanced Placement/IB classes receive an additional 1.0 weighting.
DePaul College Prep is located at 3300 N Campbell Ave, Chicago, IL 60618. All classes will be held in-person on the DePaul Prep Campus at the Mary A. Dempsey Academic Center.
Technology/Cell Phone Policy
The Technology Acceptable Use Policy and Guidelines along with the Cell Phone Use Policy outlined in the DePaul College Prep Parent-Student Handbook are applicable during all summer school school courses.
No transportation will be available for summer school courses.
