As the nation’s first multi-campus charter school, Friendship Public Charter School has been producing college-ready students for over 15 years. From Preschool through 12th grade, Friendship invests in providing a rigorous academic curriculum that enables our children to excel as ethical, literate, and well-rounded leaders in a 21st century economy. We surpass our peers across the District in public education with a 91% graduation and college entrance rate. To this end, we also hold the quality, success, and development of our teachers with paramount importance. We provide a number of professional growth and development opportunities, which have afforded us both the 2010 and 2011 DC Teachers of the Year, and a number of outstanding leaders who launched their careers in our classrooms.
The Friendship PCS Summer Associate Program is a highly selective internship program designed to identify and cultivate our next generation of education professionals. Friendship is seeking exceptional undergraduate students from a range of academic disciplines who demonstrate the talent, skills, and values needed to positively impact the quality of urban education and lead our children to high levels of achievement.
