Students & Families

At DC schools, students develop the knowledge, skills, and confidence to become Washington DC’s next generation of leaders. Equipped with a DC education, our alumni are empowered to be successful in college, careers, and life. To achieve this, we ground ourselves in a commitment to excellence, equity, and justice.

In partnership with families, we approach each day with ambition, purpose, and an unwavering focus on what is best for all students.

Camp DC

Outstanding experiences for exploration, learning, and fun shouldn’t stop when the school year ends. We partnered with the organization  to create , an immersive 2-week sleepaway camp designed specifically for DC students entering grades 4–9.

Family Involvement at DC

in the Community

At DC, we develop deep community partnerships that provide in-and out-of-school experiences for our students and resources to support student development. As a result, we’ve engaged in several community-based initiatives and work closely in partnership with community-based organizations, schools, and elected officials in DC.

Please contact director of advocacy, Vanessa Gerideau, if you want to learn more about involvement with DC and community events.
