Enrollment Information

The 2019-2020 My School DC application is open!

DC Prep is participating in My School DC - a common application for nearly all DC-based public schools. Visit My School DC for more details about the application process.
Please note that DC Prep waitlists cannot be carried over from year to year: Families must re-apply to DC Prep via My School DC for a chance to be admitted through the lottery, or to be added to the waitlist, for SY19-20.
