Faith, Character, and Service
Rooted in common Judeo-Christian values, St. George’s provides an inclusive, ecumenical environment that supports spiritual exploration and growth, and acknowledges each student, regardless of religious preference or background, as a child of God, endowed with gifts that should be nurtured, affirmed, and shared. All students participate in regular chapel services and age-appropriate religious education.
An emphasis on character and leadership is a distinctive component of the St. George’s experience. Chapel services and an honor code serve to reinforce lessons of character every day. A much-anticipated St. George’s tradition is the speech that every fifth grade student gives in front of the entire student body about a character trait of personal interest.
St. George’s students are contributing citizens in their school community and in their larger community. Respect for self and others is a hallmark of a St. George’s student and is exemplified in a vibrant community service program. From providing meals for the homeless to raising money St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, students participate in a variety of age-appropriate community service projects, guided by their teachers and the Chaplain/Director of Student Life. Hands-on service learning programs produce graduates who are well prepared for a life of engagement and service.
