What Parents are Saying

“No matter what the challenge, DC Prep always finds a way to overcome and make things better for the students. And even when DC Prep is celebrated for its progress, the staff is always looking for ways to make things better. The kids do a cheer - 'good, better, best, never let it rest – until your good is better and your better is best.' That’s DC Prep!”
