“I decided to invest in Capital City not simply for the students who are fortunate enough to attend this school, but because it is a model that can be replicated in other schools to help students throughout our city.”

Capital City is committed to transparent fiscal responsibility. The D.C. Public Charter School Board has commended Capital City year after year for its fiscal responsibility. The non-profit database GuideStar recommends to donors that an organization should spend no more than 24% of its budget on administrative costs; Capital City spends far less.
