Welcome to DPA
Digital Pioneers Academy is a tuition-free public charter middle and high school, open to all students. We empower students to develop marketable computer science skills and habits of innovation so they can experience a future of choice. Our middle school serves scholars in grades 6-8 and is located at 908 Wahler Pl in southeast Washington, DC.
DPA creates an environment where everyone in our school community lives and models our values.
We focus on preparing our scholars for college and career, starting in 6th grade. Our scholars take courses in humanities, science, math, social studies, and computer science. Middle school scholars have one teacher for math, science, and computer science, and one teacher for English language arts and humanities. This allows teachers to make connections across the curriculum, build stronger relationships with students, and better meet students’ learning needs.
EXTRACURRICULARS & SPORTS
In addition to rigorous academics, we offer extracurricular activities and athletics to help middle school scholars build college- and career-ready skills.
