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:
