DC Prep Virtual Back to School Bash

We were blown away by all of the support for this year's Virtual Bash! Our goal for the week was to raise $150,000 for distance learning, mental wellness supports, and PrepNext.Thanks to the positive responses and overwhelming support we received, we raised over $210,000 which will directly benefit our community of over 2,100 students, their families, and our alumni, teachers, and staff.

Here's a short video to say "thank you" from the entire DC Prep community!

We are so grateful for the support of our co-chairs, Kris McBrady and Bridget Nikodem, as well as our Dean's List and Honor Roll sponsors, listed below. 

Learn more about your impact. 

In 2003, we were one school with 100 4th and 5th grade students. Today, we’ve grown to six schools with over 2,100 preschool – 8th grade students. To continue to bridge the educational divide in Washington, DC, especially throughout this continuing pandemic, we need your help. We work to provide a high-quality academic and social-emotional education, support good teachers to become great ones, and make sure every member of our community feels supported each day. 

By donating to the Virtual Back to School Bash or DC Prep, and by spreading the word, you’re giving kids in DC the power to do more.
