George School provides a variety of services for students to simplify their on-campus purchases at the bookstore and snack bar (Bettye’s Place), for off-campus activities such as movies and shopping, for travel to and from home, or for weekend activities. We encourage students to minimize the amount of cash they carry with them or keep in their dorm rooms.
Charge accounts are available to all students at the George School Bookstore and Bettye’s Place. Students may use their student identification cards to charge purchases of books, supplies, clothing, snacks, and incidentals on campus. These charges will be included on their regular monthly George School statement. Parents may also establish a student debit account for purchases of discretionary items such as snacks and drinks. These charges will be deducted directly from the student’s debit account. Student debit accounts can be funded in a variety of ways and with an amount of the parent’s choosing through George School’s Student Debit Account System on our convenient and secure online portal at my.georgeschool.org.
Cash withdrawals are available for students with a debit account. Students may withdraw cash using their student identification cards at the Student Bank up to $100.00 per day with a $300.00 weekly maximum. Students will be able to withdraw larger dollar amounts for special circumstances such as traveling home during a break period. The Student Bank is located in the Business Office and is open Monday through Friday from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. When the Student Bank in the Business Office is closed (evenings and weekends), students can make cash withdrawals in the Deans’ Office.
Students must fill out this form to register their bike and receive a decal for identification.
Laundry Service for Boarding Students
There are two options for student laundry. A wash and fold service is $330 for the entire school year. Students may drop off and pick up their laundry in Main Building between 6:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. It is helpful if students’ clothing is marked with their names. You may sign up here for this service.
The school also provides machines in the dorms for student use. New Maytag washers and dryers have been installed in the dormitories, and are equipped with SmartCard readers. Coins will no longer operate the laundry machines. Each student who wishes to use the dorm washers and dryers will receive a laundry card pre-loaded with $5.00. Value can be added to the laundry card via the Value Point Terminal, which has been installed in the basement of Marshall Center. The terminal will take bills in $5, $10, or $20 and does not have the ability to give change. If the laundry card is lost, a new card can be purchased for $10 through the Value Point Terminal. The cost for the use of both the washer and dryer is $1.50 each.
Parking for Students
Students who drive to campus need to register their car and request a parking permit. Students must park in the Fitness and Athletics Center parking lot.

George School is pleased to offer daily transportation for students commuting from the Lawrenceville, Pennington, Princeton, Skillman, and West Windsor areas of New Jersey for the 2018-2019 academic year.
Preliminary routes, stops, and times will be available this summer for your consideration. Stops will be at designated pick-up and drop-off points.
Morning pick-up times will be arranged so students will arrive in time for the start of classes at 8:00 a.m. Evening vans will depart George School at 7:00 p.m., following afternoon activities and dinner. Evening departure time is subject to change depending on the preferences of van riders in a given year.
The annual cost for van transportation is $4,750 and priority is given to roundtrip riders. If space allows, one-way riders may join the van service at a cost of $3,150 per year. Families who sign up for this service are committing to the full year’s expense. Our ability to operate this service depends on meeting a minimum number of students. We reserve the right to cancel or modify the program as needed.
For questions regarding van transportation, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
