St. George’s students come from all corners of greater Memphis, from many backgrounds and every walk of life, yet they discover that they are more alike than different. Here, we foster friendships, challenge stereotypes, and instill a will to know and be known that enriches your child’s life. Students learn to practice self-discipline—to weigh their words and predict the consequences of their actions. At the same time, we urge our students to step past their comfort zones—to try out for the new team or take the tougher class. The result strikes a balance between good sense and ambitious goals.
A tightly-woven student life program of co-curricular activities, off-campus trips, athletics, leadership, service, health and wellness, traditions, and importantly, our Episcopal foundation are essential elements of a St. George’s education. Through Chapel and Advisory, students also grapple with ideas and social matters, embrace diversity and paradox, deepen connections with their own beliefs, find understanding and respect for those of others, and develop their voice and character.
