Enrollment Process

Enrolling your child is easy. LEARN D.C. uses the common lottery system for all Washington D.C. public schools called My School DC. To enroll, create an account on MySchoolDC.org and rank LEARN DC Public Charter School as your #1 choice.

My School DC will try to match families with their first choice school, then second choice school, and so on. You will receive lottery results on or by April 2, 2021.

Students applying after the lottery will be added to the waitlist on a first-come-first-served basis. Please submit a post-lottery application if you missed the lottery deadline of March 1, 2021. If there are open seats available, your child will receive an offer.
