So many moments and celebrations for the Class of 2020 will not be possible this year, due to the coronavirus and the need for social distancing. One tradition that will continue, however, is our Community Values Scholarship to support seniors with college expenses.
This scholarship helps students cover the costs of books, room and board, and tuition. We are a Title I school with 68% of our students qualifying for the free and reduced meals program. We serve a diverse student body that comes from every Ward in the District of Columbia. We aim to graduate young adults who are self-directed, intellectually engaged and possess a commitment to personal and civic responsibility.
A panel will select senior awardees based on their need and their short essay responses to how they embody Capital City's community values of Contribution, Compassion, Courage, Self-Discipline, and Integrity.
Awardees will be announced at our virtual Senior Awards Ceremony in June 2020.
