As a school community, we are committed to making DePaul Prep's education possible for families from socioeconomically diverse backgrounds. DePaul Prep understands that Catholic high school education is an investment in your future. Tuition is the backbone of our budget. The cost per student is actually higher than the tuition, and the difference is made up through our Board of Directors and donations from outside sources. The below information reflects the tuition schedule for the 2018-2019 school year.
Classes of 2020, 2021 & 2022

Students who participate in the Kairos Retreat also pay a separate fee. A family will incur additional costs for books, one-to-one technology, uniforms and meals. All DePaul College Prep students and families are required to participate in two annual fundraisers to support the school, which can include a contribution to the DePaul Prep Annual Appeal.

Tax Credit Scholarships
In August 2017, with bipartisan support, the House and Senate passed a comprehensive education funding bill that was signed into law by the governor. The law includes a provision for tax credit scholarships, which provide strong incentives for donors to support non-public school scholarships for low-income students in the state. Illinois students from low-income families may use these new scholarships to attend a non-public school of their choice.
This legislation represents a major step forward that will help create more equity in school funding throughout Illinois, and for the first time provide real school choice for students and their families.
The questions and answers below provide an overview of the scholarships, including important information for donors and scholarship-eligible families. If you have other questions, please feel free to contact Bob Hudzik from the Office of Catholic Schools at 312.534.5200 or
