Discover GDS

At Georgetown Day School, we are committed to honoring the integrity and worth of each individual in our diverse school community. Our GDS community is at once joyous and purposeful, rigorous and nurturing, talented and humble, inclusive and engaging. We were founded by seven families who sought to create a school committed to academic excellence, educational innovation, and social justice. Our founders intuited what new research now proves—diverse learning environments are academically stronger and give students the essential skills to navigate a complex world.

During your family’s admissions process, we hope to get to know you personally, through our open houses, campus tours, and individual family meetings. Our goal is to support you as you discover how GDS sets the standard for educational innovation and excellence. Come visit!
