School Options Outside My School DC

 

My School DC is the common application and public school lottery for DC Public Schools (DCPS) and DC public charter schools (PK3 – Grade 12). Few public charter schools that serve PK3 – Grade 12 do not participate in My School DC. Additionally, adult public charter schools, DCPS Opportunity Academies, community-based PK programs, daycares, and private and parochial schools do not participate in My School DC. For more information about these programs, please contact them directly.


Public charter schools not participating in My School DC in SY23-24 that serve PK3 – grade 12:


Free PK Through Community-based Organizations (CBOs)

The District of Columbia offers free, high-quality PK for residents through a mixed delivery system that includes community-based organizations (CBOs) participating in the Pre-K Enhancement and Expansion Program (PKEEP).
 

To be eligible for enrollment in a PKEEP classroom, children must be DC residents and be three years of age on or before Sept. 30 of the program year for which the child is being enrolled and be no older than five years of age before Sept. 30 of the program year for which the child is being enrolled. Parents wishing to enroll their child in a PKEEP program must apply directly to the participating CBOs, not through My School DC.
