FAQ's for prospective parents
Frequently asked questions
Most frequently asked questions from prospective parents.
Where is the admissions office?
The admissions office is located in the main office on campus. Signs directing visitors to the main office are easily visible from the front walkway.
Do you accept new students in the middle of the year?
As long as space is available in a given grade, students can be considered for enrollment in the middle of a school year. The decision for admission is made for each student on a case-by-case basis.
May we come on campus to take a tour?
Absolutely! We love to have visitors on campus and full campus tours can be arranged by appointment. We encourage prospective families to visit us on Fridays for Celebration Chapel. This is a special chapel service when the entire student body comes together to celebrate events of the week and share exciting school news and announcements. Campus visits can be scheduled through the admissions office. Visitors are asked to sign-in at the main office when they arrive on campus.
Can my child shadow a current student?
We are glad to offer shadow visit for prospective students. For children applying to the Lower School, the best time to see the school is during their observation. For Middle and Upper School applicants, a shadow visit is a great way for students to get to know St. George’s. We will match your child with a current St. George’s student and he/she will spend half a school day going to class, meeting new friends, and experiencing St. George’s engaging learning environment.
Are parents welcome on campus?
Yes – We love our St. George’s families and parent involvement is a vital part of our school community. The St. George’s Parents Association is an active organization which helps St. George’s host a number of school activities throughout the year. Parents also volunteer in a number of ways including organizing class parties for special occasions, assisting with the book fair, helping with our annual fundraiser – The Get-Away-Gig, attending class field trips, helping with field day, and many other activities.
Do St. George's students wear uniforms?
St. George’s students do wear a uniform and we find that both parents and students like the ease of getting ready for school with a uniform policy is in place. St. George’s uniform includes everyday wear and a dress uniform that is worn for special occasions like Convocation and Grandparent’s Day The dress code is more relaxed for our high school students. With that being said, there are a number of “dress down days” or “spirit days” when students are allowed to wear jeans and t-shirts or other clothes.
