Memorial School House and Chapel

Memorial Schoolhouse

Memorial Schoolhouse is one of St. George’s signature and most beloved buildings. A majestic brick and masonry structure with a slate roof originally completed in 1923, the building houses two floors of classrooms and a two-story central Study Hall.

In 2019-20, Memorial Schoolhouse underwent an extensive $14 million historic restoration and renovation, ensuring its beauty and integrity for decades to come. The Study Hall now houses our signature Horton Center for Learning, which provides free academic coaching to students in all forms with various learning styles.

Designed by the renowned architectural firm McKim, Mead & White, Memorial Schoolhouse is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Constructed as an enduring monument to those St. George’s graduates and faculty who died in World War I, the schoolhouse contains a lobby in the center of the ground floor that features memorial plaques for our veterans who died in wartime, up to the present day.

A Worthy and Enduring Monument
