National Prep was founded on the basis to provide students with a great high school education. It is our goal to teach students to be life-long learners and give them the ability to succeed in college and become productive young adults within their communities. National Collegiate Prep serves all DC residents.

It is our goal to provide a well-rounded educational experience for our students to include a rigorous college prep curriculum to prepare our students for college and give them an international experience including opportunities to travel abroad and learn about other cultures and customs while attending National Collegiate Prep.

At National Prep We Believe:

  • Every student can achieve and meet high academic standards regardless of their learning ability, style or socio-economic status
  • Parental and community involvement is an essential ingredient for student achievement
  • Small schools promote improved student outcomes
  • Instructional methods must support the varied learning styles of students

Sankofa Ball

On March 2, 2019, National Collegiate Prep will celebrate its 7th Annual Sankofa Ball.  Sankofa is our time to introduce our seniors to the community as accomplished ladies and gentlemen. In addition to showcasing our seniors, last year we honored our partners, the 100 Black Men of Greater Washington, D.C. with our first ever James Vance Service Award. Also, we were joined this year by the Greater Washington Urban League who presented the school with a generous donation in support of our Sankofa programming. Please enjoy photos from all 6 of our balls and visit our Support Us page to support the school in providing the R.O.P.E.S. (Rights of Passage Empowering Students) courses for seniors.
