People always tell me to succeed and do well. Young Scholars is preparing me to do so.

Our Community

DC Scholars is a public charter school located in Ward 7, east of the Anacostia River.  We are free and open to all DC residents.  As a traditional charter school, DC Scholars can neither charge tuition nor be selective in its admissions process; therefore, families from across the city seek out our school because of our reputation and commitment to students.

Currently we serve 389 scholars in preschool through 5th grade.  We will expand every year until we serve approximately 475 scholars in grades PS – 8th grade.
