Dupont Park Adventist School

Academic Excellence and Spiritual Enrichment Since 1916


The Dupont Park Adventist School is nestled on the edge of the city in Southeast, Washington, DC, and surrounded by Fort Dupont Park, from which the school derives its name. This Christian institution is the only Seventh-day Adventist school in the nation's capital, and throughout its 103-year history, it has made a significant impact in the community and in the lives of the students who have matriculated through its hallowed halls. From this nurturing, caring environment have come generations of professionals, artist, technicians, leaders, thinkers and doers...prepared to serve in this world while preparing for the "world to come." 



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. Wayna Gray


Welcome to the Dupont Park Adventist School website. It is a tremendous honor to be named the principal of Dupont Park. I look forward to creating strong and harmonious relationships with the students, staff, board, and parents of this great community.

My goal is to continue to build an ideal school environment where students feel physically and emotionally safe, academically challenged, and mentally and physically engaged in learning. Teachers will feel supported in their teaching and inspired to try new things. Teaching and assessments will be standards-based, instruction will be data driven, and collaboration will be purposeful. But most importantly, students will be led by precept and example to honor God, value others, and  become excellent, godly scholars and leaders.

I hope you will consider enrolling your child at Dupont Park Adventist School because we are unapologetically the School with the Eternal Advantage.

Wayna Gray
