St. George Episcopal School is a coeducational, Christian community of approximately 500 students, Jr. Kindergarten through eighth grade, located in the city of Castle Hills in the heart of San Antonio, Texas. We offer outstanding academic preparation for high school and beyond to students of typical to exceptional ability. Our graduates routinely excel at top high schools across the city, with 90% of graduates qualifying for honors or advanced classes. Established in 1954, St. George remains loyal to the original vision of its founders: to provide an affordable, quality academic experience to students regardless of culture, faith, and economic background.
Time spent in the classroom is only one part of the larger education students receive at St. George. A diverse program of extracurricular events and activities helps to build a strong sense of community among students, parents, and teachers alike, and helps create an environment conducive to growth and learning.
St. George is a faith-based community of parents, teachers, and students dedicated to the common goal of developing well-rounded young adults. We believe that by encouraging and supporting each student’s area of God-given talent, our children will gain confidence and are likely to achieve in a multitude of areas, making them more successful and well rounded overall.
Our community is strengthened by the time, talent, and contributions provided by parents, grandparents, alumni, and members of the local San Antonio community. Our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) fosters a sense of enthusiasm and pride through family events, teacher recognition, and fundraising efforts that directly benefit the educational experience for our children. Parents, grandparents, alumni, and friends support our community through Annual Fund contributions, planned gifts, and active participation in school events and fundraising efforts.
The St. George community focuses on individuals who share our common goal. St. George students must truly want to learn, be able to keep up with the fast pace of coursework, and be exemplary citizens of the school. Parents must be engaged and active participants in the teaching process. All St. George teachers and staff are committed to the success of each student individually, while also keeping the rest of the class challenged and achieving to their fullest potential.
St. George is a private preparatory school fully accredited by the Southwestern Association of Episcopal Schools. We are a member of the National Association of Episcopal Schools, the Texas Association of Nonpublic Schools, and the Independent School Association of San Antonio.
The Southwestern Association of Episcopal Schools (SAES) is a member in good standing of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) Commission on Accreditation. It has voluntarily agreed to abide by the Commission’s Criteria for Effective Independent School Accreditation Practices and to submit to a thorough review and evaluation of its accreditation standards, criteria, and procedures. SAES is recognized by three state agencies and by eleven Episcopal dioceses within the six states served by the association.
