  • We are Committed to Authentic Learning. Gone are the days when learning was all about memorization. Using approaches like Harkness and project-based-learning, our students are consistently shown how to apply learning in real life, problem-solving contexts as they seek authentic connections between their curricular and real world problems.
  • We Offer Some of the Most Diverse Curricular Options in North America. Whether it`s our Advanced Placement classes, Latin, Beekeeping club, rugby and basketball teams, or our award-winning bands and ensembles, breadth and depth is at the heart of who we are. At the Grade 10 Level, students can even choose our optional theme-based Majors called "cohort programs" that transcend multiple disciplines including: Science and Technology, Outdoor Education, Global Studies, and Performing Arts. 
  • Our Boarders Benefit from an Urban Boarding Program. Being a boarder at St. George`s does not mean being isolated, in fact, quite the opposite. We have over 100 boarders who come from 20+ countries worldwide, and we have achieved international prominence with our diverse student body. Our boarders interact with over 650 local day-students while they enjoy all of what Vancouver has to offer - whether urban, cultural, or outdoor.
