St. George's Stories


Class of '88

I have no doubt St. George’s was the best place for my education. When I speak of education, I don’t mean getting prepared for a career, but for life in the world.


Class of '18

My homestay family says they're lucky to have me, but I always feel it's me who's lucky to have them.


Class of '20

It was kind of meant to be. The second I walked into St. George's, I thought, "Yes, this is the school for me."


Staff, Class of '98

For the past 25 years, St. George's has been my home. I love being able to give the same attention and devotion to students that I felt my teachers gave to me.


Our students are not just multifaceted - they’re multi-fascinating.
At St. George’s we’re devoted to helping each of them uncover every aspect of the fascinating, passionate person within.
