Welcome to DC Prep, Newly-Admitted Families!

Congratulations on your admission to DC Prep! In order to hold your spot for the 2017-18 school year, you must complete the steps listed below. If you don’t complete these two items by the deadline given, you will forfeit your space for the 2017-18 school year, will need to re-apply via My School DC, and will be added to the bottom of the waitlist for that specific grade and campus. If you are a currently-enrolled family, wishing to return to DC Prep for SY17-18, you can also re-enroll your child here!

What our Students are Saying

“What I like about DC Prep is that they push me to achieve high, not just ‘reachable’, goals. DC Prep is strict, but I am grateful because the teachers want better things for me. In other words, I like my school because they make me work hard for what I want in life.”
Alexis, DC Prep Class of 2016
