Highlights for Students
WLA is free for D.C. residents. Minor costs will be incurred for uniforms and activity fees and lunch if FRPL does not apply.
All students receive a laptop computer that they will use every day at school.
Students will receive high-quality college preparation and counseling all four years.
The WLA staff consists of some of the most talented leaders and teachers anywhere across the country.
WLA is located at the heart of the historic neighborhood of Brookland in Northeast D.C., 10 minutes away from the Brookland/Catholic University Metro Station.
All students will gain resumé-building, real-world experience through a comprehensive 11th-grade internship.
All students will be assigned a "House" upon entry into WLA. This Harry-Potter inspired tradition builds relationships and healthy competition throughout the WLA experience!
