Health & Wellness
Our highest priority at Prep is ensuring the safety and wellbeing of every student. We believe that a healthy and inclusive learning community nourishes students physically, emotionally, and intellectually; fosters joy in learning and living with others; and ensures that all feel safe, seen, and supported.

Preserving confidentiality is an essential part of the trust relationship between student and school counselor. Confidentiality is maintained except (1) if the student is a danger to himself or others (2) if the student is at risk of personal harm from abuse or neglect (3) if required by court order.
Georgetown Prep Counseling Services adheres to the recommended practices and ethical standards of the American School Counselor Association and the certification guidelines set by the Maryland State Department of Education.
At any time, students are welcomed to visit the Counseling Services office located on the Third Floor of the George Center above the lobby facing the quad. Students may use their lunch period, free period, or meet with a counselor before or after school.
Safety and Security
At Prep we have contracted with a security company that monitors campus 24/7 every day of the year. From 7 a.m. - 11:00 p.m., there are two security guards on campus, one in the guardhouse at the front of campus, and one on patrol around campus.
The Montgomery County Police frequently stop by campus during the day and are here for major events.
There are security cameras around campus inside and outside.
