Our Mission:

Photo of International Boarding School in PennsylvaniaAccomplishing our goal of educating students is not simple or ordinary. For us, it's not enough for students to acquire great knowledge about great things and be truly prepared for college. It's not enough for them to make strides in social development, creative talent, and athletic ability.

We also ask them to look deep inside, to find and clarify their authentic selves, to blossom intellectually, personally, and spiritually. Students learn about the tension between individual and community, that fairness and justice are inherently tied to each other. They learn to express themselves without trampling others, asking for what they need rather than demanding what they want.

Core Values:
- Transformative relationships between teachers and students are the heart of the George School educational experience. Based upon a powerful combination of example, mutual respect, and personal commitment, these relationships support a program that is intentionally balanced between rigor and reflection, passion and compassion.

- George School is committed to being a community where people with vastly different backgrounds, identities, and perspectives are united both in their respect for the unique gifts that each brings and in pursuit of a common good

- Personal Integrity with values of simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality, service, and stewardship

Off-Campus Service Project:

We believe turning your attention to others is so important that it's both a graduation requirement and a part of the fabric of life on campus. The spirit of this commitment lives on in the daily work students do around campus. Co-op, especially "shift" in the dining hall, has become a badge of pride that every George School student wears.

You'll also spend at least 65 hours completing an off-campus service project, but it is not really the number of hours that are important. It's what you will give and get from the experience. You will have opportunities for service trips that take you out into the wider world where you'll look inside and learn about yourself.
