Timeline and Events
Do not get so wrapped up in the college process that you lose sight of what is important. Keep doing the things you love here at SG, because nothing makes you realize the end is near like knowing where you are going next.

At St. George’s, we have high standards for our students. College counselors expect each student to play an active role in his or her college admission process. It is up to students to solicit recommendations from teachers (counselors take care of the follow-up), sign up for standardized testing, brainstorm ideas for personal statements and essays, and when applicable, reach out to coaches or specialty program directors.
Students at St. George’s receive a brief introduction to the college process in the spring of their fourth-form year. They formally kick off the process in the fall of their fifth-form year with large group sessions on how to approach the college search and continue with a blend of group and individual meetings that happen in formal and informal settings with their counselors.
