Enrollment Information

The My School DC application is live! We are excited to begin enrollment for SY20-21 across our six campuses.

DC Prep will once again participate in My School DC - a common application for nearly all DC-based public schools for the 2020-2021 school year. Visit My School DC for more details about the application process.

Please note that DC Prep waitlists cannot be carried over from year to year. Families must re-apply to DC Prep via My School DC for a chance to be admitted through the lottery, or to be added to the waitlist, for the 2020-2021 school year.

We strongly encourage prospective families to stay connected with us and to ask any questions about our programming directly to our Enrollment Team. They can be reached at enrollment@dcprep.org or via phone at 202-780-5126.

If you have any questions on the enrollment process or specific campus information, please feel free to email enrollment@dcprep.org. For more information on aftercare programs, please click here

Did you know: All DC Prep campuses earned Tier 1 rankings on the PCSB School Quality Reports!

What our Students are Saying

“My teachers have encouraged and challenged me. They are gentle but they hold us to high standards. They teach us what to do to get good grades, make and keep friends, and have strong relationships with adults.”
