New Student Orientation

New students should expect to use their own laptops during orientation. It is important that before arriving on campus, students should:

  • Log in to their email at o365.georgeschool.org. Their email address is in the format of username@georgeschool.org. For example: studentn23@georgeschool.org. It is the same password that they use to log in to the Portal at my.georgeschool.org.
  • Complete the New Student Technology Orientation course in Canvas. Students can access Canvas by logging in to the Portal at my.georgeschool.org and clicking “Canvas LMS” in the Quick Links sidebar on the left side of the page, or directly at georgeschool.instructure.com, where they may be prompted to log in with their username and password.

Any student who does not have their username/password, or has been unable to access the Portal, their Office 365 account, or the New Student Technology Orientation course should contact the IT Service Desk at 215-579-6560 or servicedesk@georgeschool.org.

Instructions for new student registration for the 2019-2020 academic year can be found here.
