Digital Pioneers Academy (DPA)—D.C.’s first computer-science focused middle school—opened its doors last fall in Ward 7’s Hillcrest neighborhood with an inaugural class of 120 sixth graders (and a waitlist). DPA is preparing scholars not only to graduate from college, but also to secure a high-paying, high-demand 21st century career. Scholars are required to take a daily computer science class with a rigorous curriculum that equips them with habits of innovation, problem-solving, and creativity.
