At St. George’s, students learn beginning in our Early Childhood Department and all the way up to High School, that you don’t have to be an adult to make an adult-sized difference in the world.
Students have opportunities to discover their passions and put them into action. Community service is initiated by students, planned by students, and led by students. Faculty and staff support and encourage students to help the world in great ways keeping their own passions and interests in mind.
The High School LEADS program further develops student leadership and service and gives high school students additional outlets for initiating service projects.
Many projects are organized by individual classes, grade levels, clubs, and teams within the school, while some projects are presented as a school-wide opportunity.
Multiple service projects and opportunities happen all the time on and off the St. George’s campus. Some of these have included:
- Making 1500 sandwiches for those in need in Atlanta at All Saints Episcopal Church (Atlanta) in partnership with six area service organizatins
- Operation Christmas Child boxes
- Toys for Tots
- Acts of Random Kindness
- Stepping Stones Special Olympics
- Unicef drive
- #Socktober (collecting socks for Rushton’s Hope)
- Noah’s Ark Animal Sanctuary Fundraiser
- Playing Bingo with residents at local nursing homes
- Collecting money for Emmaus House in Atlanta
- Painting a four-square play area at the Salvation Army after-school program

Honduras Summer Trip
In addition to serving locally, students are invited each summer to serve beyond the United States on a mission trip to Honduras. Students spend over a week at Orphanage Emmanuel ministering to children through play, music, friendships, and bible clubs.
Annual School Wide Muddy Trail Run
The annual Muddy Trail Run is a fun, school and community-wide event hosted by the SGES High School Students, and all of the proceeds to go benefit the African Children’s Mission.
Each year, students get dirty and have fun at the annual 5K and 1 mile fun-run in the mud. Hosted, organized, and led by the High School students, the morning is always a challenge as both children and adults master the mud, climb out of creeks, and use a rope to pull themselves to dry land.
