Georgetown Preparatory School is an independent, Jesuit college-preparatory school for young men (grades 9-12). Of the 460 students, approximately 100 are residents. They come to Prep from around the U.S. and throughout the world. Founded in 1789 by America's first Catholic bishop, Prep is the nation's oldest Jesuit school and the only Jesuit boarding 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." This focus on serving those less fortunate is exemplified by the active Community Service program in which all the Prep students are involved. While the philosophy is uniquely Jesuit and distinctly Catholic, Georgetown Prep is open to young men of all religious backgrounds....
