Visit

Capitol Hill Day School welcomes visitors throughout the year. There are a variety of opportunities to tour the School and see our mission in action.

Note: Capitol Hill Day School is one of several schools in the DC area that uses a system called Ravenna for online applications. Through Ravenna, families can register for tours and other admissions events, submit an application, track the status of its completion, and view the decision notification when it is released. To register for an upcoming event, please go to Ravenna to login or create an account. 

Small Group Tours

The Admissions Director leads small group tours on a weekly basis from September through December and April through June. Tour sizes vary, but generally there are five families on the weekly tours. Tours begin at 9:00 or 11:00 am, and are about one hour in length.

Open Houses

Open Houses are held once a month in October, November, and December. Capitol Hill Day School 8th graders and current parents lead small group tours. Open Houses include opportunities to see classes, and meet current parents, faculty, staff, and the Director of Financial Aid. The Open Houses are about two hours in length.

Head of School Tours

Head of School, Jason Gray, leads a few fall and winter tours, typically on Wednesdays at 9:00 am. Tour sizes vary, but are usually 8-10 families and about 90 minutes in length.



"I admire Capitol Hill Day School for adhering to their progressive roots at a time when the pressure is fierce to shade toward more traditional practices, especially in urban areas like DC. It all comes down to doing what they believe is best for kids - providing the programs that will engage their interests. In an era where schools are driven by performance on standardized tests, this is a noble commitment."

Tom Little

Former President of Progressive Education
