New England Boarding School Campus View

Founded in 1896 as an Episcopal boarding school by the Rev. John Byron Diman, St. George’s today lives firmly in the 21st century, with state-of-the-art academic and athletic facilities, and an innovative curriculum that prepares students to become the thoughtful, compassionate leaders and doers the world needs most. 
A community drawn from a wide range of traditions and backgrounds in the U.S. and around the world, our school provides opportunities for students to deepen their intellectual curiosity and develop their distinctive talents — whether sequencing DNA in a lab, composing music in the arts center, scoring a goal on the athletic fields, navigating by starlight on Geronimo, or learning beyond campus in one of our unique connected-learning programs in places like Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. St. George’s School continues to fulfill its mission through enrolling a diverse, academically talented, and well-rounded student body guided by educators committed to creating a supportive and inclusive environment. True to our Episcopal heritage, we welcome students, faculty, and staff of all faiths to a community guided by core values: respect for each individual, personal integrity, and service to others.

We work together to build an environment that welcomes, values, and respects every member of our community regardless of age, ability, culture, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic background. Our domestic students hail from 29 states – from Alabama to Wyoming, including the District of Columbia. Thirty-three percent are students of color. Sixteen percent of our students come to St. George’s from international families, representing 11 countries spread across the Americas, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East. The diversity of perspectives students bring to campus makes classroom discussion both stimulating and educational. Outside of class, students share their identities, culture, and traditions in the dorms, through the arts, and in student clubs.
