*WIN stands for “What I need.” WIN days are times for students to rest between terms, socialize with friends, work on long-term projects, … whatever they need. Though academic classes will not meet on these days, sports teams and performing arts may have competitions, performances, practices, and rehearsals, and other art classes may have obligations as well.

** Students taking the SAT on August 26, 2023: The August 26 SAT will NOT be offered at George School. Students who are required to be on campus on August 26 (prefects, preseason athletics, NSO leaders) may register to take the SAT at a nearby school (Council Rock North, Neshaminy High School) and will be provided transportation to the test. Only those students required to be on campus for leadership or athletic reasons are permitted on campus. No student is permitted to return to campus early for the sole purpose of taking the SAT test.
