The City is Our Classroom

At Capitol Hill Day School...

Students are the changemakers, teachers are the guides, and the city is our classroom

We are fortunate to have our nation’s capital at our doorstep — a one-of-a-kind classroom in which our students learn through frequent field experiences and community engagement.

The middle school years bring profound developmental changes. That’s why Capitol Hill Day School takes a “whole child” approach to help students develop their academic and social-emotional skills.

After graduation, our alumni distinguish themselves in their education and lives, using their curiosity about the world to learn how to answer their own questions.

Our high school placement program includes SSAT prep, interview practice, and long-standing relationships with DC-area private and public high schools.

Capitol Hill Day School's unique approach, rooted in progressive education, helps middle school students learn who they are, and become critical thinkers, compassionate leaders, and engaged citizens.
