Dupont Park Adventist School

Academic Excellence and Spiritual Enrichment Since 1916


The Dupont Park Adventist School is nestled on the edge of the city in Southeast, Washington, DC, and surrounded by Fort Dupont Park, from which the school derives its name. This Christian institution is the only Seventh-day Adventist school in the nation's capital, and throughout its 103-year history, it has made a significant impact in the community and in the lives of the students who have matriculated through its hallowed halls. From this nurturing, caring environment have come generations of professionals, artist, technicians, leaders, thinkers and doers...prepared to serve in this world while preparing for the "world to come." 



Our Mission

Principally, we commit ourselves to excellence in preparing our students for the service of God's church, country, and community, and above all for eternity.


Our Vision

The vision of Dupont Park Adventist School is to graduate independent thinkers who take the lead academically, socially, and spiritually.


Meet Our Principal

Mrs. Frances Foote, Esq.



My number one goal as your Principal is to holistically nurture every student who enters our campus. Why? Look around you. Our world desperately needs godly individuals who display academic prowess, critical thinking skills, and social aptitude. For 106 years, the Dupont Park Adventist School has dutifully answered that call. We empower our students to serve as leaders today, tomorrow, and forever. That mission has never changed, and our resolve has never wavered. I am excited as we encourage these current and future leaders to reach their fullest potential. 


Although the objective remains the same, our approaches must be adaptable. We will continue to incorporate technology in the classroom. Our decisions will be intentional, data-informed, and prayer-based. Most importantly, our young scholars will flourish and be safe. Parents will be involved. Teachers will be supported.   This is how we prepare them to serve their families, communities, and each other. So if you have children or know children in grades PreK3 thru 8 who are not currently enrolled at Dupont Park Adventist School, I encourage you to enroll them. Today!
