Anacostia Elementary Campus

Dear AEC Community,
We’re proudly kicking off the 2017-18 school year – DC Prep’s 15th! – in our newly-renovated, state-of-the-art home for Anacostia Elementary – The Ruth & Norman Rales Campus.
Our team is so excited to welcome new and returning Preppies and families back to school for what will undoubtedly be our best academic year yet!

The key ingredients of high-quality early childhood programs have been incorporated into DC Prep's proven model, creating what will be a coherent and exciting learning environment that lays the foundation for college preparation and success from the earliest years.
