DC Prep Back to School Bash

We're excited to announce the eighth annual Back to School Bash will be held on Friday, October 12th from 6:30PM-8:30PM. 

All proceeds of the night’s festivities will directly benefit DC Preppies and teachers who, together, make us the top-performing network of public charter schools citywide.

We are so grateful to our Bash Co-Chairs and our Dean’s List and Honor Roll supporters for their generosity.

Learn more about our campaign.

In 2003, we were one school with 100 students. Today, we’ve grown to five schools with over 1,800 preschool – 8th grade students. To continue to grow and excel, we need your help. Our goal is to raise $25M by 2020, to double our impact in Washington by launching new schools, supporting good teachers to become great ones, and providing a world-class education to 1,500 additional children in the city’s most underserved neighborhoods. By donating to our campaign and spreading the word, you’re giving kids in DC the power to do more.




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.”
Erika Harrell, Parent
