Overview

Georgetown Preparatory School is an independent, Jesuit college-preparatory school for young men. Founded in 1789, Prep is the nation's oldest Catholic boys' boarding and day school. Prep's academically rigorous liberal arts curriculum is based in the educational philosophy of Jesuit founder, St. Ignatius Loyola: a belief in reflection, discernment, scholarly excellence, and personal responsibility, as well as the importance of being "Men for Others." Nationally recognized athletic and fine arts programs with close access to Washington's museums and seat of government compliment the academic program.
