About St. George's School

St. George’s is an independent, coeducational boarding and day school offering a comprehensive college-preparatory program to students in grades 9–12.
Exterior of Academic Center
Founded in 1896 as an Episcopal boarding school by the Rev. John Byron Diman, the school lives firmly in the 21st century, with state-of-the-art academic and athletic facilities. A community drawn from a wide range of traditions and backgrounds in the U.S. and around the world, St. George’s extends opportunities for teachers and students to deepen their skills, find new passions, and discover their best selves, whether that be in a DNA sequencing lab, in competition on the basketball court, at sea navigating by starlight, or abroad in one of our unique service-learning internships. With a faculty committed to creating a supportive and inclusive environment for intellectual, social, and personal development, St. George’s continues to fulfill its mission through enrolling a diverse, academically talented, and well-rounded student body. True to our Episcopal heritage, we welcome students, faculty, and staff of all faiths.
