Parent Portal

Welcome to the DePaul College Prep Parent Portal! This page is for current DePaul Prep parents. Communicating important information efficiently to our families is one of our highest priorities. We encourage all of our parents to use this portal to access the many resources our students and families use regularly at DePaul Prep.


Schedule a Parent/Teacher Conference

Monday, 11/25 & Tuesday, 11/26

DePaul Prep will be using Virtual Paragon's on-line Parent/Teacher Conference Reservation System for the November 2019 conferences:

schedule a parent/teacher conference
Master Password: Ram2019

The system will accept reservations for conferences from Wed, Oct 30, 2019, at 7:00am (CDT), until Wed, Nov 20, 2019, at 10:00pm (CST).

IMPORTANT! When you click the scheduling button above, you will have to type in DePaul Prep's master password before you can enter the System. You must enter Ram2019 in the field labeled "School's Master Password". Unless you indicated for us to keep your account from your sign-up session last school year, your user name and password will be deleted and you will have to create a new account. (If your account is still active, we will send you an e-mail reminder with your user name.)

Remember that on-line registration is the only way to make an appointment with your child's teachers for conference days. It is very user-friendly and will be easy for most people to use. If, however, you feel the need for more detailed instructions, you can access a full User's Guide after you login.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email assistant principal Mr. Stan Niemiec at

Morning Drop-off Protocol

To ensure both a safe and efficient morning routine, please review the procedures below. California Avenue and traffic along the street can become hectic and congested with both Chicago Jewish Day School and DePaul Prep parents using the same few blocks for school drop-off. Be mindful of your surroundings, other cars and pedestrians, and students!

  • Students enter DePaul Prep through the main door at 3633 N. California Ave.
  • Have your child ready to exit when you arrive at the drop-off area on the east side of California Ave.
  • Do not park in the drop-off area. If you need to park, please park in our lot on the north side of the building.
  • Follow the line of cars in and out of the drop-off lane.
  • If approaching from the north, please drop your child at the crosswalk at Addison St.
  • Be mindful of bicycles and pedestrians at all times. Our drop-off lane shares space with a designated bike lane.
  • Ride-shares must also follow these guidelines.
