St. George's School
Our students are able to sail for up to 5 weeks on our boat, Geronimo, to locations in the Caribbean and Mediterranean.

Theater and dance are offered as afternoon activities at St. George's. Students of all experience levels participate in a variety of productions throughout the school year.
