Who We Are
Capital Village PCS is a small learning community where learners take the lead, grow together and change the world.
We are an intentionally small middle school (grades 5-8) with a max enrollment of 175 students total and two teachers in every classroom. Our community is a village focused on the interests, needs, and ambitions of each individual learner so that all learners can grow.
When a learner enrolls in Capital Village PCS, he/she is matched with a mentor and begins building an Individual Learning Plan alongside his/her family.
We teach rigorous curriculum through student-led projects that blend Common Core standards with local social justice problems that students are empowered to design solutions. Our first campus is opening in Washington, DC, in Fall 2020.
