St. George’s is a preparatory school for college and for life beyond college. Accordingly, there is strong commitment to offer thorough guidance throughout the college selection process. The school is committed to reaching out regionally and nationally to colleges and universities, ensuring that St. George’s distinguished characteristics and the distinctiveness of its students are apparent during the college application process. A college counselor begins the formalized college application process during the student’s junior year by meeting with the student and his or her parents to establish a preliminary profile of interests and options. In addition, freshman and sophomore students take the PSAT and receive instruction in test taking strategies.
