St. George's School




Teachers

St. George’s teachers are more than teachers. They are also dedicated advisors, dorm parents and coaches. Moreover, they are students themselves – taking advantage of professional development opportunities and the Merck-Horton Center for Teaching and Learning  to grow as educators. That growth benefits them and enriches the student experience.

Classrooms

Average class size at St. George’s is 11 students, making it easy for students to ask questions and engage in lively classroom discussion and debate. St. George’s teachers also take advantage of the local community and environment for curriculum enrichment. History and art teachers bring classes to visit notable cultural sites in Newport, and science teachers take students down to Second Beach for a lesson on marine science. Experiential learning takes students even further afield – to sites abroad and the deck and cabins of Geronimo, St. George’s marine research vessel.

Advising

Over four years at St. George’s, students will choose from a selection of core classes and a wide range of electives, allowing them to explore their passions. They will make their choices alongside the Dean of Academics and a faculty advisor, who customize the learning experience to match each student’s aptitude, interests and goals.

Resources

St. George’s incorporates technology  – requiring a laptop for every student – in the academic experience. And study spaces conducive to learning abound, including those in the Nathaniel P. Hill Library, a state-of-the-art facility that houses the school’s center for teaching and learning, five group-study rooms and two classrooms.

Course Options and Diploma Requirements

Courses at St. George’s are offered by academic departments: Art, English, History and Social Science, Latin, Mathematics, Modern Languages (Chinese, French and Spanish), Music, Religious Studies, Science and Theater. All students take five courses each trimester.  Students are granted credit for courses taken previously at the high school level when it is clear that they meet the equivalent of our own curricular requirements. Students must complete their sixth-form year at St. George’s, pass all courses during their sixth-form year regardless of the total credits prior to the 12th grade and meet our diploma requirements in order to graduate from St. George’s.




Available Courses

Continually evolving to meet the needs and aspirations of today’s students, our courses offer innovative teaching in traditional subject areas, opportunities for experiential learning — and the chance for students to pursue ideas and interests that excite and energize them.
