Return to School Plan

We have devoted many weeks to developing a Plan to return to school in August.  Our objective at all times has been to determine how to return students and faculty to school safely and within public health guidelines.  In true Vincentian spirit, we asked ourselves, What Must Be Done?  and then we set about doing it.  Led by our Principal, Dr. Megan Stanton-Anderson, and informed by input from our families, faculty, staff, Board of Directors and our service providers, our COVID-19 task forces have developed plans for educating our students safely; protecting the health of our students, staff, and faculty; maintaining a physical environment that is clean, safe and meets air quality standards; and respects the individual health concerns and needs of the members of our DePaul Prep community.

Dear DePaul Prep Community and Friends:

Our nation and our beloved City are gripped by outrage at recent events of racism, violence  and injustice. As a diverse school and a community of faith, DePaul College Prep educates young people to use their intellects and their talents to their best ability.  As a Vincentian institution, we teach that it is our duty to better the lives of those who live on the margins of society.  Never is that more important than this moment in our history.
