School Notes

  • We're a grassroots, nonprofit private school for kids with dyslexia. 
  • DePaul is accredited through the Associated Independent Schools of Florida (AISF), and the National Council for Private School Accreditation (NCPSA).
  • One in five people has dyslexia. In simple terms, dyslexia describes a brain that speaks a different neurological language when it comes to letters, directions, thinking through practical problems. Very few mainstream schools and special education programs deliver lessons in this unique language.
  • All DePaul teachers have dyslexia-specific, multisensory, Orton-Gillingham-based training.
  • We take regular diagnostics on each student to measure whether our strategies are truly serving them, and create custom plans from the results.
  • DePaul brings lessons to life in brilliant color and sound, immersing students in a variety of research-based teaching techniques.
  • Almost every DePaul student attends with the help of Florida School Choice financial aid. Schedule a tour now, or call us at 904.223.3391.
