Step By Step Enrollment Process for SY2022-23

Waitlist Admission: DC Prep will begin waitlist admission after May 2nd and will continue to offer seats from DC Prep’s waitlist throughout the summer months. Families are able to check their waitlist number by logging into their MySchoolDC application at myschooldc.org or emailing DC Prep at enrollment@dcprep.org.

Step 1: Online Enrollment Form
Submit the online enrollment form. You can access the enrollment form link and unique ‘snapcode’ emailed to you on April 1st, and you are able to use your computer, tablet, or smartphone to electronically complete the form. If you do not have access to technology or are running into issues, call your campus-specific phone number and a DC Prep staff member will 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 SY22-23.
