Founded in 1789, Georgetown University is recognized worldwide for excellence in international relations, politics, and law. It is consistently ranked as one of America’s top 20 universities. Famous alumni include US President Bill Clinton, actor Bradley Cooper, and the Crown Prince of Spain. Ideally situated in Washington, D.C., Georgetown is the perfect setting for a pre-college program.
