A Message from the Headmaster

Dear Georgetown Prep Community,

Last month we wrote to you to share our plans for the fall semester, knowing full well that as a community we must remain flexible given the complexity of the challenges brought on by the global pandemic. Today, we remain committed to two goals:

  1. Devoting significant energy and resources toward a safe re-opening of our campus this fall for students and faculty who choose to join us for in-person learning and residential living, and
  2. Improving the virtual campus experience, particularly the teaching and learning in our classrooms for those students and teachers who cannot return physically to campus.

With these two goals in mind, we share an updated timeline and more information about the health and safety procedures we have planned in order to accomplish our goals. We are delaying the start of in-person instruction and the opening of our residence halls until October. We do this after carefully considering the current circumstances and with the belief that the revisions are in the best interest of our students and faculty given the constraints within which we operate.
