Guiding Educational Principles
Since the School’s founding in 1930, the concept of the "well-rounded boy" has been the defining characteristic of a St. George’s education. Mindful of their ethical, intellectual, physical, and social development, we educate and support boys to achieve fulfilling lives, here and after graduation, to be lifelong learners, and to engage meaningfully in their communities.
We therefore are committed to:
Character Development: The development of character with particular emphasis on values such as empathy, humility, integrity, respect, responsibility and resilience.
Breadth of Program: A rich and diverse educational experience rooted in the liberal arts tradition and embracing academics, the arts, athletics, outdoor education, service, and leadership.
Meeting the Learning Needs of Boys: Varied, engaging, and research-based instructional practices acknowledging the diversity of learners, and meeting the learning needs of boys.
Core Academic and 21st Century Global Skills: The development of key skills, including creativity and innovation, critical thinking and real-world problem-solving, communications, collaboration, and leadership.
Personal Wellness: The strengthening of our students’ physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being through mentorship and counselling, physical and health education, and an athletics program promoting active participation and healthy competition.
Continuous School Improvement:
A culture of continuous school improvement through which all are inspired to do their best.
