What Parents are Saying

“Our family chose DC Prep because of its balanced focus on academic rigor and character development. Having DC Prep as an option ensures that my children learn personal responsibility and are exposed to the highest academic performance standards. The results speak for themselves. Families should not need to leave the city or pay for private school in order to give their children a high-quality education.”
