Update as of April 23, 2020

In coordination with the State of Maryland and Montgomery County health officials, Georgetown Preparatory School is closed to all non-essential staff until further notice.

This closure includes all student extracurricular activities, including athletics, and other space rentals.  The Hanley Center (including the fitness center and the aquatic center) will be closed until further notice as will the Georgetown Prep Tennis Club and the Golf Course.  

We realize that this means that students, alumni, and friends of Prep will not be able to take advantage of the resources on campus as they normally do, but please understand that we have taken these measures in order to keep all members of the Prep community safe and respond to this challenge in a manner that is consistent with the advice of our local and national public health experts.  

We appreciate your support and cooperation.


Georgetown Prep follows the Montgomery County Public School's (MCPS) directives for closings and delayed openings. Follow the link to sign up to receive text and email alerts from MCPS. Prep generally communicates Montgomery County's inclement weather messages on the school's social media platforms (FacebookInstagram, and Twitter). The school posts on social media to ensure all parents, students, and faculty and staff are informed of the county's decision with any closure or delay of school.

In the event that Montgomery County Public Schools have a scheduled day off for a professional day or county holiday and Prep is scheduled to have class, Prep will communicate any closure or delay by email and will post on the school's website by 6:00 a.m.
