Mission Statement

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

Core Values

Integrity. Determination. Curiosity. Civility. Leadership. Moral Courage. Our program shares these values with our founding patron, George Washington. We offer academic rigor and self-discovery in a supportive residential community of well-qualified, diverse, and motivated individuals. It is our goal to develop habits of analytic thought, clear communication, aesthetic insight, ethical sensitivity, and civic responsibility in our students.

Unhurried conversation and close connections with our exceptional faculty and staff add enrichment to our broad curriculum of study. A beautiful campus, ready access to exciting cities and the Chesapeake Bay, and engagement with cultures and communities both local and global offer our students ample opportunity 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.
