St. George's School recognizes that the outdoor setting offers a powerful venue for achieving many aspects of the school's educational philosophy. We believe that by taking students away from their everyday, comfortable environment into a place of perceived uncertainty, we can engage students in learning that might not be possible in an urban context or day-program.
Starting in Grade 1, all students at St. George's participate in an outdoor education program at least once a year up until and including Grade 10. In Grade 10, students have the option of a year long cohort based outdoor program called Discovery 10. Activities and programs are designed to be age and skill-appropriate and will challenge students to develop in each of the four objective areas.
