Experiential Learning

Experiential learning opportunities challenge our students to grow into confident leaders, critical thinkers and expert problem solvers.

For many students, four years at St. George’s includes sailing across the open seas, entering the working world as interns and serving  communities in need. Even though St. George’s students are exposed to people from different cultures and traditions  right on campus, learning experiences abroad allow for deep insight into life beyond the Hilltop.

Geronimo

Students who enroll in the Geronimo program spend several weeks sailing along one leg of a transatlantic voyage that between 2015 and 2017 will see the ship traveling in a grand loop from Rhode Island across to the Azores and Spain, through the Mediterranean to Italy and Greece, back to the Canary Islands and Puerto Rico — and finally back up the East Coast of the United States. The Geronimo Program is multidimensional — combining a strong curricular component and cultural immersion with the development of skills in sailing, leadership and teamwork. Interested students can apply as early as their third-form year for a journey the following year. Before applying, prospective crewmembers must be in good academic standing and confident in their ability to manage a full course load while on board.
