“My wife and I met at DePaul and have decided to continue our DePaul experience by sending our daughter. She has started in the 8th grade prep program and has made such great strides in her academic, emotional, and spiritual journey. We can’t wait for her to follow in our footsteps as a DePaul Spartan in high school.”
