As a single parent, I don't know what I would have done without Capital City. It was everything we needed - linguistically and culturally diverse, with high academic standards.

Capital City provides a PK-12 educational program for District of Columbia students.  Our innovative instructional approach integrates current research and best practices. We use the EL Education model to engage students in in-depth investigations of topics through research, projects and fieldwork. Our academic program incorporates a curriculum designed to provide rigor at each program level (early childhood, elementary, middle school and high school).


We believe that all students can learn and succeed at high levels and hold students to the highest academic standards while providing each student the support and tools needed to succeed. Our program is seeing strong results. Our success is shown in our test scores, but also in our high attendance rates, student and staff retention, and an ever-increasing number of applicants.


Capital City is committed to educating the whole child.  In addition to our strong academic curriculum, we have a strong social curriculum focused on teaching students to care about themselves, each other and their environment. Additionally, we offer a comprehensive range of after-school programs for students at all levels.
