School mission and unique qualities (as provided by the school):

Georgetown College distinguishes itself from many other small liberal arts colleges across the nation by offering a combination of rigorous and respected academic programs, a wealth of opportunities for leadership and involvement in extracurricular activities, and a strong commitment to Christian values and principles. While there is no shortage of schools that possess any one of these characteristics, institutions that combine any two of these qualities are less common. By placing all three side by side at unique levels and combinations, Georgetown provides a special framework that fosters intellectual, social, and spiritual growth.
