Georgetown Preparatory School drew scrutiny and criticism after California professor Christine Blasey Ford came forward with an accusation that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a 1982 party attended by its students. Criticism and speculation about drug and alcohol use by its students and allegations of a "party school" culture drew a response from the Maryland institution that criticized its depiction.

The elite Jesuit school fired back at critics last week, saying that the image presented of the school on "social media and in various news outlets depicts recklessness, illegal conduct, and lack of respect for persons."

“But the temptations, and the failings, presented in these stories are not unique to Georgetown Prep,” said a statement issued by the school. “The problems and abuses of alcohol and drugs, sexual assault and misconduct, emotional and physical violence toward others are real; educators at every institution of primary, secondary, or higher learning in our nation face these problems every day.”

Georgetown Prep alums Mark Judge, Patrick J. Smyth, Tim Gaudette, and Chris Garrett were interviewed by the FBI as part of the supplemental background investigation into Ford's claims about a party where she claimed Kavanaugh groped her. Ford, who graduated from Maryland girls' prep school Holton-Arms, claimed Judge was present for the alleged attack. The FBI was unable to corroborate Ford's accusation, which Kavanaugh denied under oath.

Senators asked about inside jokes published in the school's yearbook during Senate Judiciary Committee hearings, including a drinking game referred to as "Devil's Triangle," and an incomplete copy of the school's 1983 yearbook was published online.
