St. George's Parents Group President and Board of Trustees member Laura Wilt reflects on her childhood, during which she was frequently the "only minority in virtually every room" and speaks to the StG community's power to inspire lifelong learning for both students AND parents.

Thank you for your interest in our school!
St. George’s Episcopal School is an inclusive, welcoming community of students age 1 through 8th grade 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
Due to the pandemic, we are reimagining tours and events with both on-campus and virtual options. While some tours are able to be scheduled in person, our campus access will be limited. Our hope is for you to get that St. George's feeling while still prioritizing the health and safety of our community. These in-person tours will be held after your virtual tour, which you can schedule through the button below. You are also welcome to walk the outside perimeter of our two-block campus, using your phone to access QR codes posted on buildings and fences. This self-paced, multi-media format will give a sneak peek into our campus!
St. George's admits students to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally made available at the school and does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, creed, color, national origin, age, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, veteran status, disability in violation of state or federal law or regulation in administration of its educational policies, admission policies, scholarship and loan programs, athletics, and other school-administered programs. Limited financial aid, based on need, is available. We are committed to an inclusive school culture.
"The magic of this real-world simulation has been in the way we have seen students develop as critical thinkers in a collaborative environment. They have needed to build consensus in order to succeed. And every child is involved. Students who struggle with writing are eager to record their ideas. Students who have usually been quiet in social studies are now loud participants in the process. At varying points, each child gets to be a leader."
Chances are, if you passed by the Salem Theatre last Thursday or Friday, you would have had no inclination that magic was happening inside...but let us assure you that, indeed, there was. Bravo on spectacular production, cast and crew of The Phantom Tollbooth!
