Your investment in Georgetown Prep through The PREP Fund will make an impact for each of our students today

Similar to independent schools across the nation, Georgetown Prep has three main sources of funding the School: tuition fees (which do not cover the per student cost of operation), income from the endowment, and philanthropic support from our community, mainly through our annual giving fund, The PREP Fund.  

A gift to the PREP Fund immediately supports our students’ overall experience.


Your support contributes to a more engaging curriculum, robust academic support, faculty development, and financial aid.
The PREP Fund allowed us to mobilize a highly successful hybrid learning program during the 2020-21 academic year. It also enabled us to continue to retain our outstanding faculty and staff and to attract talented new hires, to maintain our 8:1 student-teacher ratio, to expand our newly implemented Engineering program, to create a new Mandarin program, to introduce sculpture and ceramics in our art classrooms, and to expand academic support offerings and programs. The PREP Fund also allowed us to continue offering financial assistance to deserving young men who otherwise would not receive a Prep education.  
In 1789, John Carroll reached out to friends who appreciated the sacred work of education in the Catholic and Jesuit tradition. Today, we need the support of our community every bit as much. The generosity of alumni, parents and friends of Prep allows us to continue offering the highest quality experience to the most qualified students. For these students, we continue to pursue the magis, a restless desire for excellence that has motivated and inspired the Prep community since our founding.
Thank you in advance for considering a gift to The PREP Fund. If you have any questions, please email, or call 301.214.1266.
