Thank you for your interest in Georgetown Prep!
Founded in 1789, Georgetown Preparatory School is a Jesuit, Catholic college preparatory day and boarding school for boys in North Bethesda, Maryland. Prep’s commitment to the 450 year-old Ignatian paradigm of a rigorous liberal arts curriculum emphasizes reflection, discernment, scholarly and programmatic excellence and personal responsibility. The curriculum exposes students to a breadth of knowledge and calls for critical evaluation and self-examination. Students are taught in small classes where they participate in active discussion with teachers and an atmosphere of genuine concern for the personal growth of the individual is fostered.
