It is my pleasure as Headmaster of St. George's School to welcome you to our website.
Since 1930, we have provided our students with a challenging and supportive environment within which to discover and grow their own unique “seeds of destiny.” One of our distinguishing characteristics is the fact that we are a boys’ school. We know from brain research that boys learn differently than girls, and we strongly believe that we are ideally situated to meet our students’ learning needs through our innovative programs and approaches that reflect best practices in boys’ learning. Embracing our Vision of being “Canada’s World School for Boys,” we graduate young men with a global outlook who are able and willing to meet the challenges of a complex and rapidly changing world. As well, our Core Values—empathy, humility, integrity, respect, responsibility and resilience—are integral to every boy’s experience. We know that life’s most important lessons are not always learned in the classroom, so we emphasize not only academics, but also the Arts, Athletics, Leadership, Service, and Outdoor Education. It is our uniquely boy-centred approach and this broadly-based, inclusive educational experience that are the hallmarks of a St. George’s education.
As you explore our website, or if you visit our two beautiful campuses, you will gain a fuller insight into what makes Saints so special. You will see engaged, respectful, and happy students. You will see dedicated and talented teachers challenging and supporting their students in a curriculum that offers over 50 academic, over 50 athletic, and over 50 club electives between Grades 7 and 12. You also will be impressed by our vibrant boarding community which includes more than 110 boys from various parts of Canada and close to 20 different countries. We are a community that inspires our students to grow in mind, heart, body, and spirit; we are a school in which boys are able to find and pursue their passions.
St. George’s warmly welcomes prospective families and is pleased to provide them with personal tours at their convenience. Our goal is always to help you discover whether Saints is the right fit for your son. Come and see for yourself the essence of St. George’s School, not only in our classrooms, but also on our playing fields and in our theatre, gymnasiums, libraries, and dining halls. As you do, you will begin to understand why our graduates love Saints and go on to make remarkable contributions in a broad range of personal and professional endeavours.
Take a closer look. Come and visit St. George’s School! We look forward to welcoming you to our community.
