There are several pros associated with this school: instilling a sense of purpose and becoming "Men for Others," is of utmost importance. Students are academically challenged from the start. The campus is incredible, facilities immaculate, and the history of the school is incredibly rich. I also really enjoyed the religious element; I most enjoyed "World Religions," where I learned about inclusivity and open-mindedness through carefully studying and understanding other religious systems and beliefs. The one negative for me was how conservative and non-diverse the school is; you will experience your fair share of rich kids. Your typical kid at Prep will spout whatever political/religious jargon their well-off parents spewed at home, without thinking about it critically and how policies/actions will affect "normal" people -- which can become quite hypocritical, given the school's motto: "Men for Others." Students of varying income levels and backgrounds need to be better incorporated.

Georgetown Prep succeeds in not only maximizing the academic potential of its students but also in shaping "men for others" who embody the essence of brotherhood. No matter one's background or culture, this school serves as a true home to all of its students. At times, Prep fails to help its students balance the weight of the rigorous academic course load and the competitive athletic program. But nonetheless, Prep efficiently prepares its students for college and imparts to its students the tools necessary to make a difference in the world.
I'm really proud of being a Hoya and I will for sure miss the school. Amazing teachers, academics, and school spirit here! The school already has both great international and domestic reputation and I really recommend the parents to consider sending kids here.

But, diversity (Ideas, Religions, Race, etc.) needs to grow and the cafetaria food is personally SO-SO.

Overall: 92/100
