Welcome to Chance Academy | Your Community Based Education

Educational Choice for Families Considering Microschooling or Homeschooling in the Northeast DC and Close-in Prince George’s County

Thriving Learning Environment. Affordable Education. Personalized Learning. Discover the Chance Academy Difference.

Now celebrating over 15 trail-blazing years, Chance Academy’s inclusive educational program in Washington, DC focuses on academic success, with subsidized tuition for qualified families including financial aid for families who need it. Tuition-free for families with AGI of $60,000 or less per year.

We have refined our model over the years, adopting and integrating proven strategies: small class sizes, strong relationships with teachers, family engagement, a diverse teaching staff from various racial and cultural backgrounds, emphasis on nonviolent communication, wellness, cultural literacy, and the intentional fostering of community and belonging.

We are changing the national mindset: one student and one family at a time. Our families support and believe in our work; they know that our students – their children – will be the change makers that our country needs in the future.

What Sets Us Apart?

If you are looking to take the next step towards transforming your child’s learning experience, here is how Chance Academy works for you:

Small Class Sizes – At Chance Academy, we deliberately have smaller class sizes than average to ensure your child gets personalized, one-on-one support from our teachers. Students who attend schools with small class sizes feel fully supported and able to gain the skills they need to succeed.

Affordable Education – Chance Academy believes in investing your mind, not your money. That is why we offer subsidized tuition rates to families. We do not turn away families for their inability to pay.

A Culture of Caring At Chance Academy, we see our students as family. We maintain an instructive environment that respects and welcomes a diversity of individual backgrounds, abilities, interests and opinions.

Hands-On Learning Students in Chance Academy’s community education programs take part in frequent content-related field trips, as well as experiential and project-based learning opportunities.

Personalized Attention Every student is unique, and we want to celebrate that by building a personal learning environment with your child. One of the benefits of personalized learning is that each student receives individualized instruction from their teachers.

Chance Academy has given my children the opportunity to grow socially and emotionally. They have learned conflict resolution skills that will take them through life.  I love the hands on and experiential learning that continues to enhance their critical thinking abilities.  I appreciate the caring staff that are always attentive and always encourage academic growth. I would highly recommend Chance Academy.
