In 2016-17, 84 percent of DePaul students increased their reading level by a full year or more. Forty-one percent grew MORE than a school year's worth. That's a better rate than their peers in mainstream schools who do not have learning differences.
DePaul is Jacksonville's first nonprofit private school for students with dyslexia (grades 2-8). We specifically teach the way kids with dylexia learn.
Our parent-created school has helped students with dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, auditory and visual processing disorders, memory impairment, ADD, and ADHD for nearly forty years.
DePaul School uses a multisensory, Orton-Gillingham-based approach to immerse students in a joyous world of learning, helping those who fell behind in regular classrooms or special education due to dyslexia.
Our classrooms are filled with engaging lessons 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.
Is DePaul affordable? Yes! Almost every DePaul student attends with the help of Florida School Choice financial aid.
