How to Apply?

At Achievement Prep, our dedicated teachers work to level the playing field and push our scholars to exceed academically and personally. We have been serving Ward 8 for more than a decade. Our fully renovated campus serves grades PK3 – 3rd and is located at 908 Wahler Place SE, Washington, DC 20032 in the Washington Highlands community.

Our scholars receive 1:1 technology for both virtual and in-person learning, three times the amount of language arts and math instruction compared to other schools and a college prep curriculum starting in pre-kindergarten.
