Advanced Placement Courses

At George School, AP courses range from Latin to studio art. AImage of International Boarding High School in Philadelphia PA areand it's all hands-on, minds-on, real-world stuff. In AP Calculus, you solve problems, not because you've been explicitly shown how, but because you’ve learned to think like a mathematician and figured it out. In AP Biology, the tools that teach you about hearts and lungs and livers smell of formaldehyde, not printer's ink. Your photography course gives you more than a grade. It gives you a portfolio.

All this means you'll be ahead of the game when you really get to college. You'll know how to study better, research better, think better. And since many colleges and universities give you credit for AP courses, you’ll have some of your prerequisites out of the way, giving you time and energy to delve deeper into electives.

AP courses also help you in the increasingly competitive college admission process. Taking them shows that you're curious, motivated and hardworking—characteristics colleges look for.

English as a Second Language (ESL) Program
The English as a Second Language (ESL) program at George School is designed to help international students who need support before they gain the level of English fluency they need to participate fully in regular academic classes.

Living in the United States is a great way to study English. You'll hear it every day. You'll speak it every day. And living at George School is even better. Because we limit the number of students from any one language group, we are truly internationally diverse. You'll make friends here from around the world. You'll start to understand the culture. Our campus will become your second home.

College Guidance
The mission of George School's College Guidance Office is to help you find a college that is right for you. You'll get lots of individual counselor attention and you'll look at lots of different colleges.

Advising & Academic Support
The high caliber of a George School education means you’ll have nonstop opportunities to challenge yourself, expand your horizons, and grow as a person. We want you to take full advantage of those opportunities. That’s why our academic program has built-in features to help you make the most of your time here.
