Dear DCPS 5th and 6th Grade Educators, The Embassy Adoption Program (EAP) is now accepting applications for the 2019-2020 School Year!
The EAP is an award-winning multicultural and intercultural enrichment program, designed for 5th and 6th grade students in the District of Columbia Public Schools (DCPS). A partnership with Washington Performing Arts, the EAP uses the unique resources of embassies in Washington, DC to provide students with the opportunity to increase their knowledge and appreciation of the culture, government, arts, and geography of other nations. To date, more than 50,000 youth have partnered with over 100 embassies representing countries ranging from Australia to Zimbabwe. The program has received various accolades, including the DCPS Outstanding Social Studies Program Award and the US Department of Education Award for Outstanding International Education Program.
