One aspect of Capital City that I particularly like is the emphasis on social justice concerns and teaching students to think globally.

Our Students

During 2015-2016, Capital City served 981 students in Pre-K through 12th grade. Our students come from nearly every zip code in the District of Columbia and represent a broad range of ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds.



Since our first graduating class in 2012, 100% of graduating seniors have been accepted to college.  We have had six Posse scholars, two Trachtenberg Scholars, one Milken scholar, and many Conway scholars. The class of 2016 received more than $4 million in merit-based scholarships alone.
