DC Scholars Public Charter School prepares students to attend and succeed academically in high school and college while also equipping them with a foundation of life skills required to become productive members of their communities. Opened in 2012 as a PK-3 new-start public charter school in DC’s Ward 7, DC Scholars now serves grades PK3-8 while sustaining strong academic achievement. Our school delivers rigorous instruction, serves as a community of joy where our students thrive, and embeds the expectation that scholars can – and will – achieve academic success.
