Who We Are

Capital Village is a network of micro-schools that puts students first.

Capital Village Schools is born out of the urgent need to rethink the “one size fits all” model of American education. Each Capital Village School will create an environment where all students, regardless of background or circumstance, are propelled toward greatness in college, career, and life. With only 160 students at each school at full capacity, our intentionally small communities will focus on personalizing the learning experience and serving the whole child. Grounded in the principles of EL Education (formerly known as Expeditionary Learning), our students will master academic content through engaging social justice-focused projects. Our first campus, a middle school, is slated to open in Washington, DC,  in Fall 2020.

Who You Are

You believe that school can be different, and you want to use your voice and your skills to help shape an innovative new school model that will ultimately grow to serve hundreds of students across the city.  

You are, above all, a learner. Your potential is limitless, because you are constantly growing as a person and as a professional.

You are driven by the belief that all children, regardless of their background or their zip code, can achieve at the highest levels. You believe that it is the job of a school to provide the right academic and behavioral supports so every student can succeed, including the implementation of restorative justice practices.

You are team-oriented and love to collaborate with others.

You understand that founding a school is hard work, and you are excited to roll up your sleeves and get to work.
