St. George's Memphis, a coeducational school located in the heart of Memphis, TN, was founded in 2001 and currently serves students in prekindergarten through fifth grade. Conceived and opened as part of a capital campaign to expand the mission of St. George's Schools, St. George's Memphis benefited from a lead gift of $6 million from an anonymous donor group. The gift has allowed the school to open its doors to families that desire a superior educational alternative for their child and might need substantial scholarship assistance.
St. George's Memphis provides an academically challenging curriculum and a nurturing and safe atmosphere for its students. The educational philosophy is holistic; teachers focus not only on basic academic concepts but also on personal and spiritual growth to ensure that each child will reach his or her potential. Parental involvement is welcomed and valued, and partnerships between home and school are stressed. Teachers share a belief that education should involve participation and fun, and that such an approach can establish a lifelong love of learning.
