ST. GEORGE'S SCHOOL
BACKGROUND Our Mission: Building Fine Young Men, One Boy at a Time.
St. George’s School is a world-class boys’ university preparatory school in Vancouver offering a day program for students in Grade 1 to 12 and a boarding program for Grade 8 to 12. With a total enrollment of 1150, of which 110 are boarding students from over 20 countries worldwide, St. George’s School has achieved national and international prominence in many academic, artistic, and athletic competitions. The School enjoys the reputation as one of the preeminent schools in Canada. Here are some of its unique characteristics:
We are Canada’s World School For Boys: There is compelling research evidence to suggest boys and girls learn differently. We are a school that focuses on the specific needs of boys while ensuring that each of our students has a global mindset.
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, Underwater Robotics Club, rugby and basketball teams, or our seven award-winning bands and ensembles, breadth and depth is at the heart of who we are. At the Grade 10 Level, students 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. Our boarders, who come from 20+ countries worldwide, interact with over 650 local day-students while they enjoy all of what Vancouver has to offer — whether urban, cultural, or outdoor.
We Have an Extraordinary University Placement Rate: 100% of our 160+ graduates receive over 740 acceptances annually to over 140 universities worldwide and in excess of $2 million in scholarships.
Our Boys Lead from Within: “Making a positive difference to your community.” That’s how we define leadership at St. George’s. Guided by our six core values - Integrity, Humility, Resilience, Empathy, Respect, and Responsibility - our students lead from within in a school where every boy is known, loved, engaged, and achieving.
