Enrolling at Hearst

Welcome and thank you for your interest in Hearst Elementary School. If you are interested in enrolling in grades K-5, you can find out whether Hearst is your in-boundary school by typing your address into the School Finder. If Hearst is your neighborhood school, and your child will be attending grades K-5, the DCPS enrollment packet is available for download. All Pre-K4 seats and K-5 out-of-boundary seats are assigned by lottery; if you have missed the deadline for the 2022-2023 school year lottery, you can still apply through the post-lottery process on the MySchoolDC website.

Enrollment for 2022-2023

All enrollment paperwork should be submitted remotely; enrollment forms are available in EnglishSpanishAmharicChineseFrench, and Vietnamese. The forms should be submitted securely using SeamlessDocs, along with documents showing proof of residency (and in the case of new students only, proof of age.) Please see the attached files for examples of what types of residency documents are accepted 

The deadline to enroll for those students who have received places in the lottery was May 2, 2022; if your student receives a waitlist offer, you have one week in which to provide the necessary proof of age and residency and fill out enrollment paperwork.

In order to complete our class assignments for the next school year, we would encourage everyone who plans to enroll at Hearst do so as soon as possible. Every student who intends to return to Hearst MUST submit an enrollment packet to the school; if your student will be leaving DCPS next year, please also let Hearst know so that we may provide you with the appropriate paperwork to transfer your student's records to their next school.

If you have questions about enrollment, you can send a message to the Hearst Enrollment e-mail at [email protected] or call Hearst's registrar, Manik Hinchey, at (202)282-0106.
