Become a Volunteer
The LSF works with several independent and parochial schools in Washington, DC, Maryland and Virginia to support youth and to encourage multicultural and socioeconomic diversity in PreK-12th grade education. Our efforts are to ensure that youth have access to the best educational opportunities that the Washington, DC Metropolitan area has to offer. LSF Member Schools benefit from the cultural and linguistic support of LSF staff and supporters.

WHAT IS THE ACCESS PROGRAM?
The Access program is designed to help parents identify and apply to Pre-K-12th grade independent and parochial schools. The program includes five virtual workshops, direct one-on-one assistance in identifying schools, bilingual application and financial-aid form assistance, WPPSI and WISC test discounts and application fee waivers (based on household income) and access to a network of over 45 independent and parochial schools.
The Access program will be offered virtually for the 2020 admissions season. The information presented in the virtual workshops is an important part of the Access program and attendance is strongly encouraged. Participants will also be able to attend the BSF/LSF School Fair in October.
The Access Program provides resources and support for families interested in applying to and attending independent and parochial schools, but in no way guarantees acceptance into a school or any financial aid package. The LSF staff will do their best to find the best fit for your child and help you advocate for your child during the entire admissions process.
