Summary: St. George's School provides a rigorous college-preparatory curriculum, high standards, and dynamic classroom discussion. Round tables are prevalent and coincide with our belief in the virtue of small classes and in the benefits of active dialog and debate. Learning at St. George's School has to do with knowing the teacher and the subject matter, and we celebrate the growth that takes part at the heart of our challenging and democratic process.
Course planning at St. George's School is an individualized process. Each new student's course of study is individually planned with the advice of the director of studies. Course levels are assigned by department heads on the basis of academic proficiency, not grade level or age. The course-planning process is significant because it enables each student to set goals for the next school year and subsequent years, to explore the numerous options for building on his or her particular strengths, and, through the choices made, to clarify academic priorities.

Summary: "Life at St. George's is characterized by the strength of the close-knit community. Not only are the relationships between students of all ages exceptional and potentially life-long, the relationships between students and faculty go much beyond that of student-teacher. Because of the nature of being a boarding school teacher, the faculty members of St. George's go much beyond their basic job of teaching. They act as coaches, advisors, friends, and parents away from home. Not only is this beneficial for the development of students, but it is a valuable aspect to the community here at St. George's."

Summary: St. George's School's athletic philosophy is consistent with the mission of the school, which is to educate the student in "mind, body, and spirit." Our athletic program is therefore an extension of our students' overall education, teaching teamwork, sportsmanship, and commitment, as well as how to deal with success and adversity. We offer a wide variety of programs and levels of competition so that all students may be challenged and build self-confidence by participating in competitive sports at the appropriate level. We strive for excellence by encouraging our students to reach for ever-higher levels of proficiency, and we foster a sense of community by respecting and honoring our athletes' contribution to the school.
St. George's fields a total of 48 interscholastic athletic teams, with virtually all of its coaching staff also serving as full-time faculty members. We provide excellent facilities, issue the best equipment and uniforms, and provide a safe environment in which to participate. Our program meets six afternoons a week, with contests usually played on Wednesdays and Saturdays. We are a proud member of the prestigious 16-school Independent School League (ISL), where we compete at a high level with much success. Recognizing that not all of our students possess a keen interest in athletics, we promote diversity with the variety of offerings and we encourage our students to try new sports. Our School accomplishes all this while putting athletics in the proper perspective, as a part of our overall program in a residential, academic setting.

Summary: At St. George's, the formal college counseling process begins in the fifth form year, with students and advisors meeting in large group, small group, and one-to-one sessions to assess student interests, discuss career goals, weigh the importance of factors such as location, cost, size, and extra-curricular activities, and gain a sense of the range of selectivity a student should have in mind in his or her research of colleges.
College counselors at St. George's help a student identify a group of colleges that meet the student's needs academically and that will provide an appropriate environment for a student's continuing personal and intellectual growth. We are in the business of enabling students to see a match, and then aiding them in making that match with colleges throughout the application process. We visit college campuses, attend professional conferences and workshops, and host at St. George's one hundred colleges a year. We offer informed advice to students and their parents at every stage in the transition from the Hilltop to the future, and we value the relationships we establish with families in the course of our counseling efforts.
