DC Prep is continuing virtual learning through February 2021. Click here for updates and resources.


  • All currently enrolled students as of April 1, 2021 will be eligible to re-enroll at DC Prep for the following school year.
  • Current students DO NOT need to re-apply via MySchoolDC if you want to stay at your current cluster location (Anacostia, Benning, or Edgewood).
  • Current students DO NOT need to re-apply if they are being promoted from our elementary location to our middle location at the same cluster (Anacostia, Benning, or Edgewood).
  • Current students MUST re-apply if they would like to transfer to a different DC Prep cluster (switching between Anacostia, Benning, and Edgewood). The MySchoolDC application deadline to receive a transfer preference is March 1, 2021.
  • Siblings of current students who would like to attend DC Prep for SY21-22 must have the new sibling submit an application via MySchoolDC. Siblings who share one-parent in common receive a sibling preference if the sibling preference is requested on the application. Apply by the March 1, 2021 lottery deadline for the best chance of having the sibling being matched. Sibling applications are accepted after the lottery deadline and seats are offered as they become available.
