In taking extra precautions regarding the coronavirus pandemic, we are suspending 7th grade Shadow Days until further notice. Thank you for your understanding.
We invite you to see and experience DePaul College Prep for yourself - observe academics in the classroom, meet new friends and peers with similar interests and learn about DePaul Prep's exciting clubs and sports teams.
We host prospective 8th graders in the Fall and prospective 7th graders in the Spring. Days and dates are subject the change.
We look forward to seeing you on campus!
We kindly request that Shadow Days are scheduled at least 48 hours in advance of the requested date.
Please note that Shadow days are not hosted on Mondays or Wednesdays. Dates subject to change.
How it Works
Students will be paired with a DePaul Prep Student Ambassador, one with whom the student shares common interests. You may also request a student that you know; please indicate the request on the form. This does not guarantee a shadow day with that particular student based on daily schedules but we will try to accommodate when possible.
Shadow days begin at 8:00 a.m. and end at 2:20 p.m. Shadow students will be provided lunch. Students may bring their own lunch if preferred. Please note any food allergies on your application.
Drop-off and pick-up will be at the main school entrance at 3633 N. California Avenue.
What to Wear

Boys: Dress pants, dress shoes and a collared shirt. Polo style shirts are acceptable.
Girls: Dress pants or dress skirt and dress shoes.
Absolutely no jeans, gym shoes, t-shirts, sweat pants, sweat shirts, sleeveless or mid-drift tops allowed. Shadows will not be allowed to attend classes if they are inappropriately dressed.
