School History

Somerset Prep DC was established in 2013 with the mission to provide an individualized, academically rigorous, and engaging curriculum focusing on the ever-changing needs of our learners. Our educational process encompasses the partnership among the school, family, and community, in order to develop a life-long love of learning. 
Since 2013, Somerset Prep has been on the rise with a 22 million dollar renovation, state of the art technology in each classroom, leading athletic teams, and our very first graduating senior class. Our Digital Media Arts program has expanded to include TV Production, Music Production, Graphic Design & Photography, and Digital Journalism. Our Technology programs engage and empower learning through problem-solving, web development, data tracking and mapping, and robotics. In collaboration with Digital Promise, we will soon begin the Dynamic Learning Project which seeks to improve educational equity and student learning by supporting teachers with classroom coaching in an effort to better leverage technology in powerful and meaningful ways. 
Somerset successfully gained a Tier 2 status and we look forward to becoming one of the top Tier 1 schools in DC.
