Welcome to Somerset Prep DC

     Somerset was founded on three guiding principles, Learn, Live, and Lead.  Our scholars have proven their ability to “Learn” by outperforming the network on our ANet interim assessments, having over 50% of our high school scholars meet their learning goal on the SAT, and have over a 90% pass rate in our high school college dual enrollment program with UDC!  This cohort of achievers that we’ve developed is equipped with the skills necessary to “Live” out their lives as productive citizens that will ultimately leave a lasting impact.  Somerset has produced scholars that can “Lead” especially in our Distinguished Gentlemen and Sophisticated Ladies mentoring programs.  As the principal, I am extremely proud of all we’ve accomplished together and look forward to the next set of milestones to face head on!

SOMERSET PREP DC AND BALLOU STUDENTS TAKE POSITIVE ACTION TO IMPROVE COMMUNITY RELATIONS

On Tuesday, May 15th, there was a physical altercation between students from Ballou high school and Somerset Prep DC during dismissal. This altercation stemmed from an incident that took place in the community a few weeks earlier-Lauren Catalano, principal at Somerset Prep DC, and Katreena Shelby, interim principal at Ballou High School, took immediate action, meeting with Councilmember Trayon White and other key stakeholders, to work collaboratively toward a common goal of school safety. It was jointly decided that it would be best for all involved if a restorative approach was used to address this situation. On Friday, May 18th, families and scholars involved in the altercation from both schools met at a neutral location and had a mediation with the support of Restorative DC, Metropolitan Police Department, and staff from both schools. The mediation was successful. While we are extremely pleased with the outcome of the mediation, there have been ripple effects on all families of scholars who attend both schools. As a result, both schools have issued letters to families, hosted parent meetings, and are available to answer any questions that families have regarding the events that transpired last week.
