Excel Academy Public Charter School is Washington’s first public school for girls. We opened our doors on August 13, 2008. Located in the heart of Anacostia in Ward 8, Excel’s newly implemented STEAM-focused academics and extracurricular activities support Common Core instruction in a safe, nurturing environment. At Excel, we believe that with a Constructivist approach and strong support, all students can learn and achieve at high levels. We are proudly serving 700 Preschool through 6th grade girls in school year 2014-2015, and will grow to serve over 800 Preschool through 7th grade girls in school year 2015-2016.

How will your daughter EXCEL?
