The Capitol Hill Campus meets the needs of every child through individualized intervention programs, personal advising, and behavioral support services.

We personalize every student’s track to unwavering character, academic excellence, and service. Through our approach to morning meetings and weekly scholar celebrations, we equip our lifelong learners with the mindset traits that students need to succeed throughout their academic career: resilience, perseverance, flexibility, optimism, and empathy.

Students are provided with numerous opportunities both during and after school to stay engaged and develop socially, emotionally, and physically. All students receive music and drama instruction during the school day. We also offer STEP, Global Ambassadors Program, Washington Urban Debate League, Living Classrooms Camping Trips, Volleyball, STEM Club, Flag Football, Girls on the Run, and Brikz for Kids.

Capitol Hill partners with families through our home-to-school connection, which begins with home visits and is sustained through ongoing communication, and a robust calendar of events filled with cultural awareness, wellness, and academic achievement initiatives. Students, families, and staff also engage in the community through monthly service-learning projects and fundraisers. Our Student Government Association spearheads many of our community service efforts. All 8th graders must complete 20 hours of service through in-house and community efforts. Our 8th-grade students participate in a monthly service learning activity at a soup kitchen or homeless shelter. This year, our Global Ambassadors will complete a beautification project at a school in Cuba. We encourage students to leave our community with a social justice platform and the spirit to make an impact.
