Academic Overview

Teachers at Saint George’s School, an independent school, believe in preparing children to succeed in our global world. They translate that belief into a balanced curriculum of rigorous academic training rounded out with performing arts and competitive athletics. They believe that parents, who recognize the importance of higher education and who are also concerned with high college costs, don’t want to send their children off ill prepared for the rigors of college academic life or incapable of success in non-academic endeavors.

As a result, students at all levels, K-12, are challenged daily to refine their analytical and creative skills; to question and defend their ideas; to accept responsibility for their actions; and, to develop their self-confidence through activities in and out of the classroom. They learn independence of analytical and creative thought; they learn to write, to think, to communicate more clearly, and to make informed decisions. The philosophy that guides teaching at Saint George’s School prepares students for life even beyond college in our changing and challenging world.
