About Us

Our Mission

Washington College challenges and inspires emerging citizen leaders to discover lives of purpose and passion.

Core Values

We share these values of our founding patron, George Washington: integrity, determination, curiosity, civility, leadership, and moral courage.  We offer academic rigor and self-discovery in a supportive, residential community of well-qualified, diverse, and motivated individuals. We develop in our students habits of analytic thought and clear communication, aesthetic insight, ethical sensitivity, and civic responsibility. 

Unhurried conversation and close connections with an exceptional faculty and staff complement a broad curriculum of study.  A beautiful campus, ready access to exciting cities and the Chesapeake Bay, and engagement with cultures and communities locally and around the world afford our students ample resources and opportunities for personal exploration and shared challenges.

We prepare our students for rich and fulfilling lives; for myriad and unpredictable opportunities; for a lifetime of learning, leadership, and productive endeavor.

Our Vision

The enduring values of Washington College – critical thinking, effective communication, and moral courage – move the world.
