Eastside:Overview Student Life
“I wouldn’t be where I am today without Eastside, that’s just a matter of fact. I wouldn’t be in law school, I probably wouldn’t have gotten into Georgetown, that’s just very obvious to me…We were really set up to succeed.”
– Corine Forward: Eastside Class of 2015, Georgetown University Class of 2019, currently attending Columbia Law School
Eastside has a rich and expanding arts program. Our Center for the Arts is in continuous use throughout the school day, and includes a theater, dance studio, art studio, and a darkroom.
Participating in Eastside sports helps students form healthy habits, gain time management skills, and learn to collaborate effectively. Joining one of our close-knit teams is also a great way to make lifelong friends.
Many of our boarding students consider the dorms to be their “home away from home” and grow to think of our residential faculty and their fellow boarders as part of their extended families.
The outdoor education program gives our students the opportunity to explore new environments and engage in leadership and team-building activities. The program encourages personal growth and allows each class to form close bonds.
Through our community service program, students are able to learn more about local issues, gain new skills, and strengthen their commitment to making the world a better place.
