Due to the City of Chicago's recent restrictions limiting social gatherings, as a result of COVID-19 data trending upwards, DePaul College Prep will shift its Admissions Tours on Saturdays to a virtual event. If you have a scheduled tour, you should have received an email with details regarding the virtual event.
If interested in joining the virtual event on Saturday mornings either November 14th or 21st, please email: email@example.com.
We truly appreciate your patience and understanding as we do what is best for everyone's health and safety.
Our number one priority for the 2020-2021 school year is the health and safety of our DePaul Prep students, faculty, staff, and their families, as well as our prospective DePaul Prep students and their families. While we cannot currently do our typical shadow days or open houses, we are so excited to have the opportunity to meet your family during a campus tour, and let you get a better idea of what it means to be a DePaul Prep Ram! Plan your visit by selecting one date and time that best fits your schedule by filling out the one of the forms below.

Campus tours in Fall 2020 are open to 8th grade students and their parents/guardians only - to limit the amount of attendees, we are only allowing a maximum of two parents/guardians and one student per party. If you have twins or multiple 8th grade students, please contact: Molly Oliver, Admissions Counselor at firstname.lastname@example.org
Tours for 7th grade Prospective Familes will be held in the Spring.
Please plan to arrive 20-30 minutes prior to the start of the tour for temperature checks and arrival protocols that will be taken upon check-in.
Each tour will last about 50 minutes, which includes a 15-minute presentation from our president, Mary Dempsey, and our principal, Dr. Megan Stanton-Anderson.
Safety Protocols for Campus Tours
- There will be two (2) groups of forty (40) attendees per tour (groups will be preassigned and have designated entrances to avoid crowding).
- All tour attendees will be required to wear a mask for the entirety of their time on campus, both inside and outside, and maintain appropriate social distancing.
- All attendees will have their temperature checked upon arrival. Hand sanitizing stations are located in prominent places throughout the campus.
