Parent Association

The Parent Association of DePaul College Prep welcomes you to the new 2019-20 school year!

As a DePaul Prep parent, you are automatically members of the DePaul Prep Parent Association. The Parent Association offers the opportunity for you to meet other parents at one of the many events we host and volunteer at throughout the year, in addition to scheduled meetings.

We are always looking for creative and energetic parents to work on committees. Please contact Ms. Ellen Meents-DeCaigny, Parent Association President, if you are interested in volunteering or have more questions.

Parental involvement is an integral part of the success of your child and of DePaul College Prep. An involved parent is always an asset to our community.

As primary educators of our children and working in collaboration with DePaul College Prep’s Principal and President, we build stronger parent engagement and partnership by promoting a welcoming and inclusive opportunity and tradition of volunteerism throughout our school community.

  • The Parent Association provides a means by which parents can support and promote the mission of the School, its co-curricular programs, and other events.
  • The Parent Association helps communicate opportunities for parents to volunteer at school programs and activities, promotes our vision, mission and message, and works collaboratively with the Principal and President to further the mission of the school.
  • Through faith, knowledge, and service, the grade chairs and committees will foster a sense of community through the involvement of parents, students, faculty, alumni and friends.
