On September 23, students from the Ron Clark Academy (RCA) and RCA Master Educator, Pamela Haskins, visited George School while on a tour of US boarding schools. Pamela is the mother of current George School student Zau Haskins ’21.
Students were given the option of several schools, but selected the five boarding schools that were of most interest to them. Visitors attended a class, met with current RCA alum attending George School, met Head of School Sam Houser, and ate lunch on campus.
