Anacostia Elementary Campus

Dear AEC Community,
The 2016-17 school year marked many new milestones for our AEC campus community. Not only did we welcome our very first class of kindergarteners, but we broke ground on the permanent home for our Anacostia Elementary – The Ruth and Norman Rales Campus at 1409 V Street, SE. Check out these community bulletins to stay in the loop on construction progress!
I can’t wait to welcome Preppies (including our oldest 1st graders!), families, and team members into our newly-renovated school building for the first day of the 2017-18 school year on Monday, August 28th! Until then, enjoy the rest of your summer break.

Maria-Teresa Duvall
PS: Though we will send important updates directly to families, I encourage each of you to habitually scan our interactive Events page for important reminders, and to follow DC Prep on social media.

    DC Prep's Anacostia Elementary Campus (AEC), opened in 2015 with preschool and pre-k, and will "grow up" a grade each year through 3rd grade. 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.
