Anacostia Elementary Campus

Dear AEC Community,
Time has flown in the 2017-18 school year – DC Prep’s 15th! – at our newly-renovated, state-of-the-art home for Anacostia Elementary.

It’s hard to believe that Preppies and team members are already setting into Winter Break. I hope that everyone in our community has a restful and rejuvenating holiday season with friends and family. I can’t wait to welcome you back to our school on Tuesday, January 2nd!

Tara O'Flaherty
Interim Principal

The key ingredients of high-quality early childhood programs have been incorporated into DC Prep's proven model, creating what will be a coherent and exciting learning environment that lays the foundation for college preparation and success from the earliest years.

What Parents are Saying

“We initially chose DC Prep because of its track record with great test scores and teachers. They follow kids through high school and college. We want to cultivate productive citizens and the school we chose has the same philosophy. We're completely committed to the school, and the school to us.”
