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.
You Have to See StG!
Thank you for your interest in our school!
St. George’s Episcopal School is an inclusive, welcoming community of infants through 8th grade students who are curious, creative, smart, funny and kind– a new generation of innovators ready for high school, college and a world of opportunity.
At St. George’s, each child grows academically, creatively, emotionally and spiritually, while developing a sense of self-worth and moral responsibility. We serve a blend of learning profiles in a family-like atmosphere of care and concern with a highly trained and dedicated faculty; a commitment to small-group instruction and a low student-to-teacher ratio enable us to provide an unmatched level of attention and personal interaction. Together, we embody perseverance, integrity, compassion and respect– values that foster lifelong learning and success. We boldly reimagine education so that our students have the opportunity to foster emerging passions, celebrate strengths, explore interests and develop a love of learning. A St. George’s education creates more than just great students; it develops great people equipped with empathy, motivation and confidence to become future leaders.
Finding just the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make. We would love to help and welcome you as you learn more about St. George’s. Please explore our website, and do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have. You have to see StG!

We invite you to visit our campus in Uptown New Orleans
Our Admissions team is pleased to offer a range of touring options, designed to fit a variety of schedules and flex in consideration of current COVID-19 precautions.
- In-person tours are available on a limited basis and must be scheduled in advance so that the Admissions Team can plan appropriately to have guests on campus.
- Virtual tours take place via Zoom and are wonderful, interactive opportunities to "see" StG while connecting one-on-one with a member of the Admissions Team.
- Everyone is invited to enjoy our QR code tour! Take a stroll along the perimeter of our two-block campus while using your phone to access the QR codes posted on our doors, fences and building walls. This self-paced, multi-media format is available to the public 24/7 and will give you a sneak peek into all things StG!

Today's blog post by StG parent and Registered Dietician Nutritionist Julie Canseco provides a plethora of recommendations and ideas to answer the age-old question of, "What should I pack my kid for lunch today?"
Kate Remillard, incoming Interim Director of Lower School, writes about her journey to teaching and introduces Growing Minds, an initiative driven by St. George's educators with a goal "to expand our knowledge and use of books that reflect a diverse racial, cultural or religious perspective, as well as those that feature characters with different intellectual and physical abilities or unique social-emotional struggles. Our name, Growing Minds, comes from the idea that we have so much to gain from taking a peek into another's perspective and seeing our own perspectives reflected back to us. This is how we grow our minds and open our thoughts to the world around us."
