Anacostia Elementary Campus

Dear AEC Community,
I hope you are all enjoying a peaceful, restful, and joyful summer with your Preppies! Our team has been hard at work preparing for a strong school year ahead, and we are so looking forward to welcoming you in August for our family orientations and our first day of school! I want to share my gratitude for each of you; thank you for welcoming me to the AEC school family. I am so eager to get started and see our Preppies grow, and look forward to connecting with each of you as we kick off SY2018-2019!

“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.”
