“A student attends St. George at such a crucial time in their personal development. The years you are at St. George shape who will you be as an adult. When you are surrounded by other like-minded, high-character and moral students, it forces you to become the best version of yourself. St. George provides that high quality education and environment, and it’s what makes attending the school so special.”
