About DePaul University - English Language Academy
Inspired by the legacy of Saint Vincent de Paul and Saint Louise de Marillac, DePaul University is a community gathered together for the sake of our mission. These saints shared a belief in the God-given dignity of all people lived out in an ethos we call Vincentian personalism. For more than a century the values of inclusivity, personalism, and professionalism have shaped DePaul’s distinctive culture and our service to students.
DePaul's English Language Academy has been a leader as Chicago's premier Intensive English Program for more than 25 years. Located in the heart of Chicago’s central business district, the Loop, and all the exciting cultural offerings of Carl Sandburg’s “City of Big Shoulders”, ELA believes in the power of language to create extraordinary lives.
