Primary Program Admissions in 2018-19

We accept applications for our Primary Program on a rolling basis and will offer 2018-19 admissions to the program as follows:

Early Admissions: Applications are due on February 1, 2018 to be considered during early admissions for the 2018-19 school year.  We prioritize a balanced ratio for gender and age and we give preference to returning and alumni families who apply by February 1st. Offers will be sent February 15, 2018 and a non-refundable deposit of 10% of tuition will be required by Feb 26th to guarantee space in the program. Any families who do not pay the 10% deposit by February 26th can request to remain on our active waitlist.

Rolling Admissions. We accept applications on a rolling basis all year for families who do not participate in early admissions. We fill spaces as they become available and we continue to prioritize age and gender balance. Due to many Capitol Hill families’ participation in the DC Public Schools lottery, we will maintain a wait-list throughout the spring and summer. Families are encouraged to stay in touch with our Admissions Director (  to discuss prospects for admission.

Submit your child’s application. To apply for our 2018-19 Primary Program, please submit an online application.
