All tryout days are by invitation only. Request a tryout day after your tour by submitting your student’s psychoeducational evaluation/diagnosis, and their most recent report card showing conduct and attendance.

You get a discount for enrolling a qualifying sibling (-$1500), and/or referring a student to DePaul who enrolls ($100 for each of them).

If you refer a student who enrolls, please let Charlotte Parker know at 904.222.3391.

Tips and Notes

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.

You cannot combine Florida state scholarships with each other.

Need help? Make an appointment with Charlotte Parker by calling 904.223.3391 weekdays from 9 AM – 2:45 PM.

Scholarships are subtracted from total tuition, and parents are responsible for any remaining tuition. Most parents can expect to pay $300+ per month for DePaul, even with the maximum amount of scholarships.

Please note: Parents are responsible to pay full tuition payments until funding comes through.

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

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