Some schools give you a desk, we give you a city.


We take active learning to a whole new level. Expanding beyond our location at Hill Center, we use Washington, D.C. as our classroom. Whether it’s visiting the U.S. Capitol as part of a history lesson, exploring math at the National Building Museum, or cultivating a community garden around the corner, we see everything around us as an opportunity to learn and grow.

Academically Rigorous

We tackle two subjects at a time, focusing on each for several hours a day – an approach that allows students to achieve deeper learning. Our students are intellectually curious. They welcome new challenges and think critically about real-world problems. All of our students graduate ready to pursue their passions.

Average class size of eight

Every student has a “front row” seat. Our teachers provide care and empathy to ensure all of our students receive the individual attention they need to succeed. We start and end every day, week, and year with a single-minded determination to serve our students well.
