Welcome to the dePaul School

dePaul Students and Teacher

The dePaul School provides an alternative educational experience for children with learning disabilities, dyslexia and attention deficits in the Tampa Bay area.

The purpose of the dePaul School is three-fold:

  • To remediate learning weaknesses, bringing the student up to or above grade level in core academic areas
  • To educate students in all four growth areas – emotional, social, intellectual and physical, providing opportunities for children to develop into confident, competent individuals
  • To prepare students for their future educational placement by providing them with the tools and the confidence they need to learn with their disability

The dePaul School is..

  • Established in Clearwater in 1983
  • Non-profit 501 (c)(3)
  • Non-denominational
  • Full-time school for students ages 5–14
  • Five week Summer Reading Camp for school age students

Awards Season

In the entertainment industry, this time of year is known as "Awards Season". With so many award shows held in just a few short months, one wonders how the stars choose which events to attend. In the field of special education, this time of year presents a similar dilemma - there are so many professional development opportunities to choose from that it can be difficult to decide which ones to attend! While we obviously cannot attend them all, the dePaul staff does make a showing at many of these events - both close to Clearwater and far away. These events are our "award shows"!
