While your student is on our waitlist we cannot accept your enrollment. We will reach out to you as soon as there is a seat available and share the enrollment steps and deadline with you.

Apply through My School DC to be added to our waitlist! If a seat opens up for you we will reach out to share the enrollment steps and deadline with you. If you already applied, you may want to call My School DC at (202) 888-6336 to get more information about your application results.

  • First, check to see if your other students are on our waitlist. If they are not, you should call My School DC at (202) 888-6336 to get their help adjusting your application.
  • If your students are on our waitlist, we’ll let you know as soon as a seat opens. If Ingenuity Prep is your preferred school, we recommend enrolling your students who do have a match or waitlist offer now to secure their seats. We also recommend you enroll your other students at another school while you wait so you can be certain all of your students have a school to attend next year. Ingenuity Prep cannot guarantee that we will have seats available for siblings on our waitlist.

Ingenuity Prep students wear a navy blue polo with the school logo, and khaki bottoms (shorts, pants, skirts). Students should also wear flat-bottom, close-toed shoes; our students go outside for recess or PE every day and these shoes help keep our students safe! You can see our full Uniform Guide in the Family Handbook.

The uniform shirt must be purchased from our uniform partner, Risse Brothers. You can purchase your shirts at their store in Lanhamonline at their website, or over the phone. Short- and long-sleeved polo shirts are available. Risse Brothers also offers outerwear and khaki bottoms for purchase, but you may purchase those items anywhere that is convenient for your family.

If you need assistance with purchasing uniforms, please call our front desk at (202) 562-0391.
