Step 1

All tryout days are by invitation only.

DePaul is usually fully enrolled by early spring before the school year starts. We don’t get final scholarship amounts from Florida until July before school starts. That means you shouldn’t wait for scholarship announcements before you enroll in DePaul.

Scholarships are subtracted from total tuition, and parents are responsible for any remaining tuition. Most parents can expect to pay $200+ per month for DePaul, even with the maximum amount of scholarships.

Students are not eligible for re-enrollment if you are not current on payments.

Tuition is tax-deductible ONLY if itemized under Medical Expenses.
