Welcome to Georgetown Day School

At GDS, you will find a warm, diverse, and inclusive environment that instills a love of learning in every student who comes through our doors. Our students are joyful, confident, and engaged, not only in school, but also in the world around them.

During your family’s admissions process, we look forward to getting to know you personally, supporting you as you explore the rich tapestry of academics, extracurriculars, and social activities that GDS has to offer. This year, to comply with COVID-19 safe practices, we will be offering a variety of ways to connect with us online through virtual information sessions, video tours, personal Zoom meetings with our admissions officers, and opportunities to connect with our students, parents, and teachers virtually. Please feel free to reach out to us at any time. We are excited to meet you soon!

Welcome
