Alumni

 DC Alumni Association

Welcome to the DC Alumni Association! From the founding class of scholars who graduated from DC KEY Academy in 2005 to our first DC College Preparatory graduates in 2013, our network has grown to more than 2,005 DC alums.

The DC Alumni Association supports alumni advancement through networking and connectivity. It serves all DC completers- including middle school alums- upon high school graduation and connects alums to fellow graduates, resources, and local and national alumni support services. The alumni association continues supporting alumni after transitioning from services following college and career program completion.

With a growing alumni network, our goal is to curate and provide a space where former students can reconnect, engage, and network with the DC community.
