Serving children with dyslexia for nearly 40 years

DePaul School of Northeast Florida

We Teach The Way They Learn©

Dyslexia affects 1 in 5 people, but schools for dyslexia are rare.

DePaul is Jacksonville's first full-time school for dyslexia (grades 2-8).

We are a parent-created school for students with specific learning differences like dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, 
auditory and visual processing disorders, memory impairment, ADD, and ADHD. We've been helping kids in Northeast Florida for nearly forty years.

DePaul School uses a multisensory, Orton-Gillingham-based approach to go beyond conventional accommodations in an optimal learning environment for students who fall behind in regular classrooms or special education. 

Our classrooms are filled with multi-sensory activities delivered by creative teachers in small-sized classes.

We are accredited by the AISF, and we serve children with dyslexia in Duval County, Clay County, St. John's County, and beyond. Most of our students attend DePaul using the McKay Scholarship, as part of Florida School Choice.
