At St. George’s Episcopal School, we believe confidence is the cornerstone for success in education and life. Since 1969, our rigorous academic environment has focused on utilizing small group learning to encourage our students to explore the world around them.

At St. George’s Episcopal School, we are proud to fully develop, not merely educate, each student.
Our low student-to-teacher ratio enables us to provide an unmatched level of attention and personal interaction so that each student gains the confidence to achieve his or her fullest potential. Our philosophy looks beyond test scores, focusing on developing creativity, determination and a strong sense of self-worth and moral responsibility at school and in the larger community.
