Complete Your Enrollment

It's time to enroll at DC Prep! 
All current families and all newly matched families must complete SY20-21 enrollment. 

Congratulations to all lottery matched families!
We are excited for you to join the DC Prep family! As a new member of the DC Prep community, it's time to complete the enrollment process to secure your child's spot. 

DC Prep's enrollment process has been modified this year due to the Covid-19 public health emergency. All of the steps that are required to enroll your child are listed below. We know these are uncertain times and your family may be facing new challenges. We are committed to providing support for all members of DC Prep's community as you navigate the enrollment process.

Due to COVID-19, all of our previously scheduled new family back to school events will be rescheduled to later this summer. We will email you an updated list of events, dates, and locations (virtual or in-person, pending health officials’ recommendations) as soon as they are available.

If you are a currently enrolled family wishing to re-enroll, you can re-enroll your child using these steps as well. 


  1. Complete the Online Student Enrollment Form 
    Submit online enrollment form. You can access the enrollment form link and unique 'snapcode' emailed to you and use your computer, tablet, or smartphone to electronically complete the form. If you do not have access to technology or are running into issues, a member of our enrollment team can schedule time to provide phone support. We urge you to complete this step ASAP so we know you are planning to send your child to DC Prep for SY20-21.
