Georgetown Preparatory School, the high school where Judge Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court, attended, is at the center of attention amid allegations of sexual assault. The 93-acre campus in a Maryland suburb boasts a state-of-the-art athletic center, a nine-hole golf course, and its own gift shop. Multiple accounts from 1980s-era classmates depict an alcohol-soaked party culture among the close-knit network of single-sex, mostly Roman Catholic private schools in the country’s wealthiest state.
