Attendance is an invaluable aspect of the learning process. DePaul College Prep expects student daily attendance with the exception of student illness, death or serious illness in the family, or an emergency situation beyond a student’s control. Daily attendance hours are 7:45 a.m.-2:45 p.m. Students are expected to be in dress code, ready to learn and seated in their first period class no later than 7:40am.  To achieve that, it is recommended that students arrive by 7:30 am..
