Unique learning opportunities at St. George’s challenge our students to grow into confident leaders, critical thinkers and expert problem solvers.
For many students, four years at St. George’s includes sailing across the open seas, entering the working world as interns and serving communities in need. Even though St. George’s students are exposed to people from different cultures and traditions right on campus, global programs allow for deep insight into life beyond the Hilltop. Other programs, such as our Rogers Scholars Program in Washington, D.C. help students explore possibilities for the future.
Students who enroll in the Geronimo program spend one leg of a tour that will take the boat along the eastern coast of the U.S., from Rhode Island to the Bahamas and back. The Geronimo Program is multidimensional — combining a strong curricular component and cultural immersion with the development of skills in sailing, leadership and teamwork. Interested students can apply as early as their third-form year for a journey the following year. Before applying, prospective crewmembers must be in good academic standing and confident in their ability to manage a full course load while on board.

The Rogers Scholars Program
The Rogers Scholars Program is a unique opportunity for students to gain intimate knowledge of our federal government and the many career options available in the nation’s capital. Through face-to-face meetings with alumni working in Washington, D.C., and their colleagues, students learn from people who’ve built impressive resumes serving in a variety of fields, including technology, polling, campaign strategy, lobbying and lawmaking.
Global Studies & Exchanges
Exposure to new ideas and experiences through St. George’s Global Studies Seminar, our Global Cultural Initiatives Program (GCIP) exchanges and study abroad opportunities help our students grow into independent thinkers with an appreciation and respect for diverse cultures throughout the world.
The Global Studies Seminar is a yearlong elective course that focuses on the global forces that connect our world. The opportunity to conduct in-depth research, travel abroad and present their work gives our students a global lens on the challenges that face our world.
Global Cultural Initiatives Program (GCIP)
Our GCIP program partners hands-on experience with a strong cultural awareness component. While living with a host family in London, Madrid or Paris, students participate in dynamic three-week internships.
Our Partner Schools
St. George’s enjoys partner relationships with forward-thinking schools across the globe. Students who travel to our partner schools come back with lifelong memories—and new international friends and connections.
St. George’s students interested in a yearlong global study experience have participated in School Year Abroad, a program that sends students to live with a host family and attend school in China, France, Italy or Spain.
