The Student Support Services department offers resources and information for parents and students in three distinct but interrelated areas: Learning, Health, and Counseling Services.
GDS Learning Resources
Georgetown Day School supports the individual learning needs of our students while maintaining our academic standards. Our team of learning specialists is a resource for students, parents, and faculty. We recognize that some students may need academic accommodations or enrichment to help them reach their academic potential.
Georgetown Day School recognizes that there is a direct relationship between a student’s health and his or her ability to learn. Our health services team consists of a nurse on the Lower/Middle School campus and a nurse and a certified athletic trainer on the High School campus. The goal of the health services team is to ensure that students are safe, healthy and able to learn. In addition to working directly with students and their families, our health care professionals collaborate closely with our learning specialists, counselors, teachers, and coaches and serve as the liaisons between outside health care providers and school personal.
The primary responsibility of the Georgetown Day School Counselors is to provide emotional and social guidance and support for the school’s community with the interest of promoting an exceptional environment for learning, social responsibility, and childhood development.
Georgetown Day School is a coed, preK-12, non-sectarian private school in Washington, DC with small class sizes and a diverse school community. Our comprehensive, innovative curriculum includes hands-on learning, honors and AP classes, as well as advanced-level math and STEM courses. An education is not just college prep and SAT scores. GDS teachers focus on providing the best education for each child, from elementary grades through high school. The school performing arts program includes theater, dance, and music. The athletics program offers competitive sports for student athletes, including cross-country, track, soccer, lacrosse, and crew/rowing. With our strong commitment to financial aid, an independent school tuition is affordable.
