Welcome to Georgetown Day School! GDS is at once joyous and purposeful, rigorous and nurturing, talented and humble, inclusive and engaging. Our students learn and grow in transformative ways because of these qualities, and we are thrilled that you are considering joining this remarkable community.

When you visit our Lower/Middle School, you will witness the multitude of ways in which our youngest students embody the vibrancy and independence that distinguish our child-centered program. At our High School, you will notice that our students are empathic, self-reliant, creative, and fully engaged in challenges that excite them.

With teachers who understand them deeply and make learning fun, we guide students in the development of skills that will empower them to be active thinkers, doers, and change-makers well into the future.

As you learn more about our school and program, know that we are committed to learning more about you and your child as well. We will be happy to assist and get to know you throughout the admissions process. We are glad you are here and very much look forward to meeting you. Welcome!
