Join IDEA at Virtual EdFest -- Saturday, December 12 from 11am-2pm

Register for free today for EdFEST, DC's annual public school fair. This year's event will be held virtually, on Saturday, December 12 from 11am-2pm. Students and families are invited to check out the variety of public and public charter school options for students entering PreK 3 to 12th grade next fall. 

EdFEST participants will have the opportunity to talk with school representatives and learn about application procedures through the 2021-2022 MySchoolDC lottery, which opens December 14.

At IDEA we recognize that DC families have many schools to choose from. What makes IDEA stand out is our relationships with scholars and families. IDEA teachers and staff go the extra mile to engage, motivate, and guide our scholars, meeting them where they are and making sure they succeed. Particularly during the pandemic--which is challenging for all of us--IDEA has stepped up our outreach to families.

This year IDEA has

  • Kept our community informed and solicited their ideas during weekly town hall meetings
  • Nurtured connections and provided a fun (and safe!) event for families with our Fall Festival
  • Nourished families with harvest baskets for Thanksgiving
  • Celebrated the end of the year with secret snowflake surprise treats for all scholars and staff
