JEDI at St. George's refers to our community's work for justice, equity, diversity and inclusion. In our first blog post of the 2022-2023 school year, Dr. Veronica Gillispie-Bell—trustee, parent and JEDI Task Force chair—reminds us that, "Change requires us to get uncomfortable," but also that, "We cannot exercise our core values (perseverance, integrity, respect and compassion) without also making St. George's a place where everyone feels them."

Thank you for your interest in our school!
At St. George’s Episcopal School, we believe that everyone learns differently. Our version of personalized learning means every child will be challenged—and every child will be supported. Through personalized learning plans, learning-in-motion classrooms, success teams and our nurturing environment, our graduates are ready for the world, not just high school. As a community, we embody perseverance, integrity, respect and compassion–values that foster lifelong learning and success.
For over fifty years, we have served a blend of learning profiles in a family-like atmosphere of care and concern with a highly trained and dedicated faculty; our commitment to small-group instruction and a low student-to-teacher ratio enables us to provide an unmatched level of attention and personal interaction with every student. Our approach allows each child to grow academically, creatively, emotionally and spiritually, while developing a sense of self-worth and moral responsibility. Our school provides families with a positive, nurturing environment to help students discover how they learn best—and what it takes for them to succeed.
We know that choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make as a family, and we are here to help every step of the way. Our admissions process is intentionally thorough and designed to help you learn more about St. George’s, while also allowing us to get to know your family on a more personal level. We invite you to explore our website and inquire for additional information and links to our tour calendars so that you can experience the magic, meaningful relationships and personalized support that St. George’s embodies and provides.

St. George's 5th graders visited the Tate, Etienne & Prevost Interpretive Center this week and received an opportunity to tour with, interview and learn from Leona Tate, one of the three girls to integrate what was then McDonogh 19 Elementary School (now the TEP Center). Dr. Kreutziger recounts the trip and the students' valuable experience, as well as Ms. Tate's challenge to stay positive and focused.
