Our Mission

Since 1789

Founded in 1789, Georgetown Preparatory School is America’s oldest Catholic boarding and day school for young men in grades 9 through 12, and the only Jesuit boarding school in the country. Situated on 93 acres in suburban Washington, D.C., Prep's mission is to form men of competence, conscience, courage, and compassion; men of faith and men for others.

From our world-class academic programs and modern athletic facilities to our state-of-the-art residence hall & campus center, Georgetown Prep has something for all students to enjoy and grow as young men. If you are interested in enrolling in our private Catholic school or staying at our boarding school during the school year, we welcome you to contact our admissions office today! We’d be happy to help you plan a visit and provide you with all the information you need.

A Prep education inspires our students to lead a purposeful life by continuing to grow and challenge themselves in leadership and in service to others through higher education and beyond.

Intellect

A commitment to the concept of Magis (Latin for ‘more’) is a hallmark of Jesuit schools. It challenges students to go beyond what is expected, interacting with their community with generosity, excellence, and empathy.

Ignatian Identity

A Jesuit education, fulfilling the vision of St. Ignatius, is grounded in teaching our students to find God in all things. The values of Jesuit education prepare students to be well-informed, balanced, and compassionate young men.
