Financial Aid & Scholarships
Thanks to the generosity of our board members and benefactors, DePaul College Prep can offer our students two kinds of financial assistance:
- Need-based tuition assistance for students who apply and qualify based on the family's financial need
- Academic scholarships for eligible students who score 80 or above on the Catholic High School Entrance Exam
Criteria for current students:
For returning students, please fill out a financial aid application every year. The online financial aid application opens on October 1st in FACTS Grant & Aid and closes February 8th for current students.
- The existing tuition account must be current, with no amounts owed.
- Students who receive financial aid must maintain at least a 2.0 GPA.
