The Armory

The Armory is DC’s student-run school store which opened in the Fall of 2020.

Since its inception, more than 80 DC upper school and middle school students have honed their business and entrepreneurship skills serving in The Armory through DC’s SAIL and business classes. Students develop skills and gain knowledge in a wide variety of business areas, including marketing and communications, graphic design, finance, interviewing, entrepreneurship, the customer experience, event planning, market research, and inventory management.

From the first group of students who wrote a full business plan that earned them a $20,000 loan from the school, to the current students who are running the store to pay off that loan, this venture has grown into a flourishing business.  

Purchasing through The Armory continues to build and strengthen the DC community through spirit wear, community engagement, fostering entrepreneurship, highlighting the creative endeavors of our community members, and more.
