The Foundation for DCPS works with local partners to provide educational enhancements to DCPS students and staff. Foundation staff provides a myriad of connections including:


Kids on Campus - introduces the college campus visit process to first generation students at no cost to students

Scholars - The Foundation works to partner caring local business mentors with first generation college students during high school


Need a speaker for your class or help arranging a fieldtrip to a local business? Let us know what you want and we will be glad to make those connections for you.


As more people invest in education, the Foundation can do more for our 11,500+ students.
