School Notes:

  • Founded in 1789, the same year the U.S. Constitution took effect, Georgetown University is the nation's oldest Catholic and Jesuit university. Today, Georgetown is a major international research university that embodies its founding principles in the diversity of our students, faculty, and staff, our commitment to justice and the common good, our intellectual openness, and our international character.
  • The School of Continuing Studies offers a series of classes for students wishing to prepare for college level study. Targeted for students who have completed at least their sophomore year in high school, these courses are designed to promote concrete improvement in the basic subject areas of English and math and to develop college research and study skills. In all aspects of instruction the importance of critical thinking is underscored. In view of the demanding nature of the program, enrollment will be limited. (Students will receive grades for the courses, but not college credit.)
  • While the College Prep Program prepares students academically for college, two community building workshops introduce the students to another important aspect of the program -- the self-awareness journey. The first workshop on the opening day of the session provides students with the opportunity to learn about each other and to begin to assess their strengths and weaknesses as individuals and as a group. The second workshop takes place at the end of the program. It is a time of reflection for students to evaluate their academic and personal progress during the five week program.
  • The in-class preparation is intensive and aims at providing the student with a complete understanding of and concrete improvement in, these basic subjects. Class attendance and the turning in of assignments is required. Failure to do so could result in the student being asked to leave the program. Students continue their study outside of the classroom with daily homework assignments. If students wish it, a staffed study lounge will be provided for assistance with their assignments. Students may also schedule one-to-one conferences with their teachers to discuss individual needs, pacing, and progress. At the start of the program, diagnostic tests are administered to determine the course level best suited to the needs of the student.
