School Admissions

Learning difficulties don't have to keep your child from becoming a successful, motivated learner!

Our students, kindergarten through eighth grade, are bright and talented individuals who are challenged by a learning difference like dyslexia or ADHD. Our teachers are passionate, creative experts who help each student excel in a demanding and complicated world.  Our classrooms are specially designed to foster organization, promote attention, and bolster academic success!

If your child’s learning difference is keeping her or him from reaching full potential in school, contact us today to start your child's journey to learning what classroom and personal success feel like!

 

The Admissions Process

  • STEP ONE:  TOUR
    Learn more about the school through Q & A and classroom visits. Call 459-6131 to schedule a one-hour visit.
  • STEP TWO:  APPLY
    Complete an online application to provide educational information. Comprehensive psychoeducational evaluations are an essential tool in helping a child achieve their greatest potential. Each de Paul family is asked to provide a recent evaluation (within 3 years) or arrange for an evaluation as part of the admissions process. The Admissions Office can offer referrals and guidance on which aspects of evaluation are required.
    Each prospective student must also have an academic assessment at de Paul to evaluate current achievement levels and eligibility. The assessment is followed by a report and feedback to families. This information helps us determine if The de Paul School can meet the educational, organizational, and social skills needs of the child via our curriculum and methodologies.
  • STEP THREE:  SHADOW
    If we feel that de Paul is a very good fit for a child, we often schedule a shadow day so that the child can become familiar with the school and vice versa. If it appears that our school cannot meet your child’s needs, we will work with you to identify another, better option.
  • STEP FOUR:  ENROLL
    We extend an enrollment package. This includes information on how to begin the FACTS reduced tuition application process which helps in establishing your family’s tuition.

“As an alum—and former trustee—of The de Paul School, I’m continually amazed with the work de Paul does to prepare kids not only for the high school of their choice, but how well the students are prepared to succeed in life. These students who were once overlooked are now leaders in our community.”
