For the 2017 - 2018 school year, St. George's School will offer the opportunity for groups of students to study the grade 10 curriculum through the lens of a 'cohort.' These groups, consisting of approximately 20 students, will take several of their classes, including one elective block, together for the entire year. This model allows the faculty to develop unique learning opportunities for the students that blur the typical boundaries of the classroom and permit greater connections with real-world learning.
Four program options are proposed for the 2017 - 2018 school year. Applications to these programs are due on Wednesday, February 8, 2017.
Please note that these programs have an additional fee of $3500 to cover the costs of the special activities and trips that are unique to these programs.Connect 10
