Academic Overview

The teachers and faculty at Saint George’s School believe in preparing children to succeed in our global world through our high quality, independent, highly-tailored private education. Through a wide array of interdisciplinary courses, unique off-campus trips and opportunities, and community-led clubs and activities, we are able to provide a rounded and valuable college preparatory curriculum that stimulates the mind and nurtures the heart. Our belief in a comprehensive private K-12 curriculum complete with rigorous academic training, creative performing arts, and competitive athletics, fosters growth and development in each of our Dragons. We believe that parents, who recognize the importance of higher education and are concerned with college costs, don’t want to send their children off ill-prepared for the rigors of academic life. Saint George’s is here to ensure that your child is prepared for success in our classrooms and beyond.

As a result, students in our elementary, intermediate, and secondary schools are challenged and motivated daily to refine their analytical and creative skills, and question and defend their ideas. Not only this, but we help students accept responsibility for their actions, and develop their self-confidence through activities inside and outside of the classroom. Our Dragons learn independence of thought, well-rounded analytical skills, and learn how to effectively write, think, communicate, and make informed decisions. The philosophy that guides teaching at Saint George’s School prepares students for life beyond college and equips all Dragons, past and present, to navigate our constantly changing and challenging world. Our dedicated faculty is here to bring out the best in every student they teach, including your child.

World Languages

All students, K-12, study a second language. Spanish is taught K-5, and students from grades 6 to 12 are able to choose from Spanish or Mandarin Chinese to continue their study of language.


Saint George’s accelerated math program is recognized as the gold standard of the region - so much so that in our Math is Cool program, we choose to compete in Division 1, against schools many times our size.

Social Studies

Our program regularly shines in national history and economics competitions, and seeks to inform and educate our students about the vast world around us, its people, and their histories.


Our English program focuses on developing rhetorical, persuasive, and mechanical skills through regular in-class writing, papers, and revisions. Equipping our students with proficiency in language allows them to enter higher education and beyond with a firm and fluent grasp of language, rhetoric, and how to communicate their ideas with others.


Our science program, focusing on hands-on inquiry at all levels, lays the groundwork for successful theoretical lab-based pursuits in college science. Not only does this prepare students with a clear understanding of mechanical science, but it inspires students to think critically about the world around them.


Our wonderful art programs equip our students with a creative eye and the experience of sharing their artistic voice. Art students at our school win honors for their creativity and skill in regional competitions, as well as gain entry into prestigious art programs around the country and go on to do great things in the world of art, performance, and music.
