Community Life

St. George’s students are happy on campus because our community gives them the space and support they need to grow into who they want to be.

The spirit of community permeates our classrooms where students participate in dynamic conversation and collaborative work with their peers and teachers. After class, students head to their afternoon activity, which may include athletics practice, theater rehearsal, independent projects, internships or community service. Free time to meet up with teachers, get a head start on homework or just spend time with friends happens after dinner and before study hall.

The Dorm Connection

About 70 percent of St. George’s dorm rooms are singles, giving students the option of keeping their door open to socialize or to study intensely in private. All rooms include the basics – Internet access, a bed and a desk, but personalization with bright bedding, posters and photos from home is always encouraged. Students share pizzas, eat take-out, watch movies, play video games and study in groups in dorm common areas. Campus Safety features like student and faculty I.D. key cards restrict entry to dorms.

A Day in the Life

During study hall, day students  have designated study spaces, which include the library and, for upper-form students, assigned day spaces in dorms. Boarding students study in their rooms, the library, the Hamblet Campus Center, the Drury/Grosvenor Art Center or in other areas on campus. Some day students enjoy their time on campus so much that they stay until 10 p.m. on weekdays. At that time, boarding students check-in to the dorms (if they aren’t already studying there), where they finish up homework, enjoy snacks in the dorm common rooms or hang out and relax until lights out.

The Honor Code

Honor Chapel 2018

Every academic year at St. George’s begins with the Honor Code Ceremony.

Signing the Honor Book is a schoolwide pledge to create an inclusive learning environment marked by honor, trust and respect. Each of us is most likely to achieve our goals when the framework in which we are working is clear, our responsibilities defined and our purpose shared. The Shield is our community handbook, and is meant to articulate and specify those shared purposes and individual responsibilities
