Summer English Immersion at George School

George School offers an intensive summer English language program that is designed to provide international students with the English they need to succeed at US high schools and colleges.

At George School, teachers challenge you, laugh with you, listen to you, and learn with you. The Summer English Immersion program is academically oriented and is designed for rising seventh- to ninth-grade students, approximately ages 12 to 14. Participants learn and study like typical George School students and they also enjoy many other benefits of life at a top boarding school—including arts and athletics, dorm life, the facilities of our beautiful and safe 240-acre campus, and the experience of living abroad.

Language instruction goes beyond the conversational to prepare students for the English needed in varied disciplines—literature, history, science, and more. Teachers are all qualified English language instructors and students are grouped into intermediate and advanced levels. The typical daily schedule includes:

  • Morning classes
  • Afternoon recreation, language practice, and community-building
  • Evening study time and dorm activities

Authentic Boarding Experience
The residential life program is another classroom. Participants make friends from around the world and enjoy dorm life under the care of experienced residential faculty and specially trained international student mentors. Dorm rooms are double occupancy and students have an option for three meals each day.

Weekends to Explore and Learn
The George School campus has a bucolic sensibility, but Newton, Pennsylvania—chosen recently as one of the ten coolest small towns in America—is only one mile away. Historic Philadelphia is thirty-five miles south and New York City is ninety miles north. Weekend activities include visits to local cultural attractions and premier educational institutions such as the University of Pennsylvania, Princeton University, Columbia, and New York University.
