Thanks for your interest in joining LEARN DC for the 2024-2025 school year! Below you will find information about how to secure your child’s seat as a returning or new LEARN DC student.


How to Enroll at LEARN DC

Families interested in enrolling in LEARN DC must submit an application through My School DC (link to: http://www.myschooldc.org/) . My School DC is the single, citywide lottery for all public schools in Washington, DC. The application is entirely online. The deadline to apply is March 1, 2024 for our PreK3 – 4th grade programs.

You can use the My School DC website to learn about school options, see upcoming events, and more!


How to Submit a Lottery Application

First, create an account on My School DC and complete the required information (use the School Finder to locate KIPP DC schools).

Next, rank schools in order of preference using your list. If a LEARN DC is your family’s first choice, rank us first. (Learn more about ranking in this YouTube video.)

We offer the following preferences: military, sibling, founders, and staff preference, should you submit your application before the March 1 deadline.

DC Residency Documentation

All students enrolled in public schools in the District of Columbia must provide proof of residency in the District. A bona fide DC resident is defined as a person that has established a physical presence in the District of Columbia. To verify residency, the student’s parent/guardian completes a DC Residency Verification Form (at the school) and presents documents showing their address. The parent/guardian must enroll that student in person, at the school, and the parent/guardian must be the individual listed on the residency documents. Learn more about acceptable residency documentation here.
