Blue Demon Access

Young men of color from CPS high schools participating in a program at DePaul University

Blue Demon Access is a 3-day, 2-night summer immersion program for Catholic high school males in partnership with the Big Shoulders Fund. Program dates for summer 2020 are June 23-25. Participating students will stay overnight in a residence hall on our Lincoln Park Campus and get the on-campus college experience by taking college-style classes, developing group projects, and partaking in engaging activities across the university. Designed for high school sophomores and juniors, the program will also incorporate college preparatory, career, and diverse cultural components. Please see Blue Demon Access 2020 info flyer for further details.

Due to DePaul University’s summer protocol regarding COVID-19, the 2020 Blue Demon Access Program has been canceled. We hope to see all of our students, parents, and partners when we revisit our Blue Demon Access program for the summer of 2021.
