Charter schools, including each of DC Prep’s campuses, are fully public schools – meaning that they are open to any student living in Washington and they operate on public dollars. There are no admissions tests or tuition fees at charter schools.

However, charters are freed from many of the rules that burden regular public schools. Charter schools have flexibility in the design of their school programs, their personnel decisions, and their resource allocation. In exchange for this freedom, public charter schools are held accountable for their school's performance including student achievement, organizational and fiscal management, and stakeholder satisfaction. For more information on charter schools, please refer to the organizations and associations listed below:

DC Prep uses data to celebrate our students' successes and to measure their progress. We post student work in classrooms and on our data walls from which teachers plan their teaching priorities. If you do not wish to have your child's work displayed, please contact Thank you.

DC Prep School Year Menus

DC Prep partners with Revolution Foods to serve students healthy, nutritious meals. Revolution Foods’ Culinary Center is a peanut and tree nut-free facility. Revolution Foods tracks for the eight major allergens: dairy, wheat, soy, egg, peanut, tree nut, fish, and shellfish. If your student is susceptible to these or has other special dietary needs, please reach out to the Operations Manager at your child’s campus.
