Our School

We have been in existence since 1916, serving school age children in the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia.


We are fully accredited by The Accrediting Association of Seventh-day Adventist Schools, Colleges, and Universities and the Middle States Association Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools.


We are part of the Seventh-day Adventist System of Education. Within this system, there are 9,489 schools, colleges and universities, with 111,360 teachers and 2,044,709 students in 115 countries.

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 PreK-3 thru 8 who are not currently enrolled at Dupont Park Adventist School, I encourage you to enroll them. Today!
