Enrollment Information

DC Prep will once again participate in My School DC - a common application for nearly all DC-based public schools for the 2021-2022 school year. 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 the 2021-2022 school year.

We strongly encourage prospective families to stay connected with us and to ask any questions about our programming directly to our Enrollment Team. They can be reached at enrollment@dcprep.org or via phone at 202-780-5126.

If you have any questions on the enrollment process or specific campus information, please feel free to email enrollment@dcprep.org. For more information on aftercare programs for when students are in-person learning, please click here

Did you know: All DC Prep campuses earned Tier 1 rankings on the PCSB School Quality Reports!
