Career Partnership with Capital Teaching Residency

City Year is proud to partner with the Capital Teaching Residency so our alumni can continue to make a difference in classrooms and in the lives of students. This partnership reflects the shared visions and values of both organizations, and their belief that young people can keep students on track to graduate from high school and pursue post-secondary education. 
City Year strengthens an applicant’s competitiveness and chances for being selected for the Capital Teaching Residency.


The Capital Teaching Residency is a cornerstone program of KIPP DC. KIPP DC schools educate and support students in the District of Columbia who have historically had limited access to high quality educational options. Equipped with a KIPP DC education, our alumni are empowered to be successful in college, careers, and life. As a Capital Teaching Resident, you play an active role in our mission.


KIPP DC’s Capital Teaching Residency is a nationally recognized, highly selective, three-year teacher training program that provides a pathway for new teachers to develop into outstanding educators. Capital Teaching Residents commit to teaching for a minimum of three years in Washington, D.C. Residents spend the first year of this commitment—their residency year—training in a classroom with a highly effective lead teacher. Following their residency year, residents will teach two additional years at KIPP DC or a partner public school in Washington, D.C.


Our mission at the Capital Teaching Residency to empower students and increase their access to opportunities by:

  • Creating a talent pipeline of highly effective teachers in D.C.
  • Retaining highly effective teachers in D.C. public and public charter schools
  • Shaping high-quality teacher preparation programs nationally
