1954

St. George Episcopal School was founded as the Pilgrim School. The first classes, held at the Pilgrim Congregational Church, were kindergarten classes for children ages three to five years old. That initial choice to focus on the formative years of education is the same one we make today. Because children’s cognitive abilities and patterns are most easily influenced and molded between age four and puberty, concentration on this core age group is vital.

Under the visionary leadership provided by our founding director, Mrs. Margie Boggus, the Pilgrim School prospered and, in time, needed more space.

The elders of St. George Church invited the Pilgrim School to make its home at St. George. Eventually, St. George added a middle school and expanded many of its programs.

2012

Through the co-leadership of Mr. Rob Devlin and Father Ram Lopez, Seeds of the Future became a reality and the architectural planning began. The project was designed to serve students, the church and school staff, as well as after school groups and ministries. New buildings, flexible work spaces, the redesign of the campus to ensure a safe environment for all community members were among the chief benefits of the initiative.

2013
May

Devlin and Lopez were joined by Bishops Gary Lillibridge and David Reed from the Episcopal Diocese of West Texas, the School Board, Vestry and St. George families, for a ceremonial groundbreaking of the new project.

2013
August

The old administration and middle school building was demolished to make way for the promising new structure. Middle School classrooms found a new home in portable buildings that took root on Trapp Field. Middle school students and teachers experienced a new way of life without lockers, walkways and the familiar surroundings of their traditional classrooms, and the entire school stayed focused as construction ensued all around.

2014

In August, the new St. George Church and School campus was officially opened. The St. George Community celebrated the long-awaited blessing of a beautiful, secure campus and buildings with flexible learning spaces and high-tech teaching and communication resources.

2015

As we enjoy our new campus, we look forward to the promising future that lies ahead as we continue to help families provide exceptional education for their children in a loving Christian community.
