Our 125th Anniversary Celebration Begins!
1896-2021 Logo

Dear SG Community,

 

Today, as we mark the official launch of our 125th anniversary year, St. George's has much to celebrate. One hundred twenty-five years ago, on Oct. 1, 1896, St. George's first opened its doors to eager students ready to embolden themselves with an unparalleled education. Today, we continue to live out our mission, build upon a powerful legacy of academic excellence, and capitalize on the incredible momentum we've acquired in the last several years: record gains in admission applications and gifts to the St. George's Fund, as well as the steady growth and exceptional performance of our endowment.

 

St. George's has weathered storms, both literal and figurative, over the years. Along with the nation, we've both faltered and shined throughout our long history. But in 2021, these are undeniable: A St. George's education is as highly sought-after as ever — and year after year our alumni and families show their tremendous support for our work and our students. Our community is committed to seeing St. George's flourish.

 

While we mark this milestone in our school's history, we also have definitive — and defining — plans for our future. Today, with this launch, we call your attention to the publication of St. George's strategic plan, "Our Horizon." We hope you will find this plan for our campus, our curriculum, and our community as energizing and inspiring as we do.

 

We are 125 years old and stronger than ever and, as in the past, our community of alumni and families is critical to our strength — and our future.

 

Enjoy our 125th launch video — and please make plans to join us for our 125th anniversary and reunion celebration in May.

 

Sincerely,
