The Children’s Guild DC Public Charter School (TCGDC) is a tuition-free, publicly funded charter school, serving children in kindergarten through eighth grade in the District of Columbia. TCGDC is open to all students and does not require testing or screening for admission. The Children’s Guild DC Public Charter School (TCGDC) is excited to welcome all families, new and returning, for SY 2020-2021.

TCGDC participates in the My School DC lottery program which requires all students to apply through  to be considered for the upcoming 2020/2021 school year. Once the student has been accepted, a TCGDC staff member will reach out to families about enrollment into the school.


After My School DC releases the results, upon receipt of acceptance, the next step is registration. An online link will be provided to our new family members allowing you to complete the required registration paperwork.
