A GDS Student Will...

While we would be hard-pressed to predict the details of life in the future, we can with a fair degree of accuracy anticipate the skills and capacities that our children will need to have a meaningful impact in this changing world. These same skills lie at the heart of a GDS education. Our curriculum ensures that our students have the opportunity to learn, practice, and ultimately, master these skills during their time at Georgetown Day School.

These skills, as we have defined them, will foster in our students both the will and capacity to change the world in ways that each generation is called to do.
