Who We Are
Since 1789, Georgetown Prep has encouraged young men to strive for excellence in all things
Welcome to Georgetown Preparatory School!
I am continually reminded of the honor and privilege to lead our nation’s oldest Jesuit school. Our students consistently interact in big-hearted ways with each other, our faculty and people whom they serve. The young men of Prep are a consistent source of inspiration and consolation. This is a tribute to their parents, our faculty and the vibrant mission of our great Catholic and Jesuit school.
Prep alumni, too, have big hearts and great spirits. This is especially obvious when they talk about the formative years they spent at Prep. Their passion for their alma mater is contagious. Whether they live as close as Bethesda or as far away as Hong Kong, Prep has a very special hold on their affections. The sixteenth-century Jesuit poet, St. Robert Southwell, S.J., writes, “Not where I breathe, but where I love, I live.” A big part of every alumnus whom I’ve met will always live on our campus.
If you are learning about Prep as a prospective student or family, there’s a lot to see. We invite you to visit our campus, be a Hoya for a Day, watch a sporting event, attend a concert or play, or attend our annual Open House. We look forward to meeting you.
God Bless and Hoya Saxa,
Scott R. Pilarz, S.J.
