Welcome from Head of School Michael C. Wirtz

Head of School Michael C. Wirtz at Alumni Weekend 2023.

From my first visit to campus, the unique nature of St. George’s School was clear. The energy fueled by curious, passionate, and joyful students. The palpable sense of community, centered on a commitment to inclusivity consistent with its Episcopal heritage. The dynamic, forward-looking educational program, shaped by talented, creative, and dedicated faculty and staff.  The stunning campus perched high above Second Beach. St. George’s is a school unlike any other.

Acknowledging the interconnectedness of our world, our academic program is organized into interdisciplinary academic departments. This approach not only ensures that students develop the enduring skills necessary for future success, but that they have opportunities to create connections in their learning that extend beyond traditional academic boundaries. St. George’s students further expand on their classroom experiences through experiential offerings — what we refer to as Connected Learning — whether on Geronimo excursions, global studies experiences, or programs such as Rogers Scholars or Dragons in Hollywood. Learning at St. George’s does not stop there, however, as faculty extend lessons into the dorms, onto athletic fields and the stage, and across a rich array of clubs and extracurricular activities. Students benefit from a 24/7 learning environment where they live and work side-by-side with faculty, staff, and peers drawn from across the country and around the world, creating a residential community that intentionally encourages and cultivates the sharing of varying perspectives, backgrounds, and experiences.

As St. George’s 13th head of school, I am honored to lead this incredible school community and excited for you to explore all we have to offer. I hope we will see you soon on campus so that you can experience for yourself everything that makes this school so unique.
