Updates on the Admissions process and Recruitment season at DePaul Prep for Fall 2021:
  • Shadow Days and Open houses will be offered this school year.
  • The Entrance Exam at DePaul College Prep will take place: Saturday, December 4th, 2021.
  • Students can only test at one Catholic high school.
  • 8th grade students who registered for the Entrance Exam at DePaul Prep and took the exam in person with us will be given first preference for admittance into the DePaul Prep Class of 2026. Due to increased interest in DePaul Prep, students who test at another Catholic High School will be placed on a waitlist for the 2022-23 incoming freshman class. 
  • Changes to the Admissions Application & supporting materials:  Due to the special circumstances and the shift to e-learning mid-year in 2019-20, and throughout the 2020-21 school year the Admissions Application will  require the last three years of final grades/report cards (6th/7th/8th grades), and most recent standardized test scores, in addition to the discipline report, student's birth certificate, and the online application.
