Waterfront Academy was recently awarded the status of goDCgo Platinum Level School Ambassador. An initiative of the District Department of Transportation, goDCgo encourages the use of sustainable transportation and recognizes local organizations for their efforts as transportation leaders. Businesses who offer transportation benefits and creative program incentives are recognized for making DC a healthier, greener city. Platinum Ambassador is the highest award presented by the organization.
Waterfront Academy offers transportation benefits to its teachers and earlier this year, welcomed Kids Ride Free to the school to promote their program. Kids Ride Free lets students ride for free on area Metrobuses, Metrorail or Circulators within DC. Students must be DC residents and age five through 21.
Waterfront Academy is in good company—additional platinum level organizations include The Department of Homeland Security, Peace Corps, So Others Might Eat (SOME), Inc. and others.
