    Friendship Public Charter School operates a thriving network of college preparatory public charter schools. Headquartered in Washington, DC, Friendship serves over 4,000 students in preschool to grade 12 and guides a growing network of alumni to college completion annually. 80% of students come from low-income households. 98% are African American or Latino. The mission of Friendship Public Charter School is to prepare students to become ethical, literate, well-rounded and self-sufficient citizens by providing a world-class education that motivates students to reach high academic standards, to enjoy learning, to achieve success, and to contribute actively to their communities.


    The program consists of post undergraduate educated individuals, certified teachers, and experienced tutors. Lead Teachers work in our after-school academic enrichment program directed towards elementary District of Columbia Public School students. Lead Teachers further provide opportunities for parents to become more involved in their children’s learning by participating on one of our 4 university/neighborhood teams – each team consisting of university students, experienced teachers, and community residents. Lead Teachers work part-time during the fall and spring; and are expected to attend a series of reflection, training, and leadership workshops.
