Updates on the Admissions process and Recruitment season at DePaul Prep for Fall 2020:
- Following health and safety guidelines, Shadow Days will not be offered this school year.
- Following health and safety guidelines, Open Houses will not be offered this school year.
- The Entrance Exam at DePaul College Prep is scheduled for three different dates: December 5th, December 12th, and January 9, 2021. Registration for our Entrance Exam opens on Friday, 11/13 at 8am.
- Students can only test at one Catholic high school.
- 8th grade students who register for the Entrance Exam at DePaul Prep and take the exam in person or online with us will be given first preference for admittance into the DePaul Prep Class of 2025. Due to increased interest in DePaul Prep, we had our first admittance waitlist for the 2020-21 freshman class. We highly encourage registering and taking the Entrance Exam at DePaul Prep if we are your first choice school, as we anticipate an admittance waitlist once again for the 2021-22 school year.
- Changes to the Admissions Application & supporting materials: Due to the special circumstances and the shift to e-learning mid-year in 2019-20, the Admissions Application will now require the last three years of final grades/report cards (6th/7th/8th grades), and 6th grade (or most recent) standardized test scores, in addition to the discipline report, student's birth certificate, and the online application.
