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 310 scholars in grades PS-4th.  We will expand every year until we serve approximately 475 scholars in grades PS – 8th grade.
