Love Learning at George School

At George School our academic program lets you chart your own path—one that is as rigorous as it is customized to you. You also will be driven by challenge—of yourself, your classmates, and your own preconceptions. The school’s curriculum gives you a solid foundation and encourages you to go further than you thought possible. At the highest levels, you can opt for courses in the International Baccalaureate (IB) and Advanced Placement (AP) programs.

Learn more about the academic program and planning process as well as to see stories of real students with varied interests (and varied pathways to suit) in our Course Planning Guide.

More Than Academics

Taking learning beyond the classroom.

At George School, your learning will be driven by questions and ideas. In small, discussion-based classes, you will debate and theorize, hone critical and creative thinking, and make your voice heard while listening and collaborating with others.

Virtual Learning

The Virtual Classroom: AP Human Geography

For AP Human Geography classes with teacher Kevin Fox, this term is all about deepening student understanding of key terms and concepts and applying newly acquired student knowledge. The end goal is a more nuanced perspective on the world’s economic, social, political and environmental patterns and processes.

The Virtual Classroom: A (New) Creative Process

Devin Vandenberg ’23 shared her recent virtual learning experience using online platforms, such as the video game Minecraft, for her Stagecraft class. Scott Crandall first asked his students to pick a play that intrigues them. From there, students discussed the different elements of the play—lighting, objects, sounds, visuals, props, and more. After identifying those elements, they began building sets designs.

The Virtual Classroom: IB HL English Writer’s Focus

While normal in-person class meetings are suspended, virtual classrooms still allow our students, wherever they are, to participate in the unique George School classroom experience. Take a peek at how Colette Weber and her students closely analyze a literary text and make it speak to issues relevant today.

It’s time for class! You’re invited to attend Media Literacy and Production, taught by Film teacher Scott Seradaryian ‘90 and History/IB Global Politics teacher Meredith Alford ‘01. Join Scott, Meredith and their students for a taste of what to expect in George School classes.
