Mission Statement

In 1896, the Rev. John Byron Diman, founder of St. George's School, wrote in his “Purposes of the School” that:


"The specific objectives of St. George's are to give its students the opportunity of developing to the fullest extent possible the particular gifts that are theirs and to encourage in them the desire to do so. Their immediate job after leaving School is to handle successfully the demands of college; later it is hoped that their lives will be ones of service to the world and to God.”


The Hilltop

The school's suburban campus is familiarly known as "The Hilltop", as it is located on the top of the highest hill on Aquidneck Island. The campus is also known for its magnificent view of First, Second, and Third Beach (which was part of the campus during the early twentieth century).

  • Memorial Schoolhouse - The main academic building in which most classes are held in subjects other than art, music and science. The Study Hall, on the second floor of the building, is where the biweekly all-school assemblies are held.
  • Old School - The oldest building on campus, Old School serves a variety of purposes. The first floor serves as the office of the Head of School, Eric Peterson, as well as many administrators and admissions counselors. To the East, the Main Common Room serves as a meeting space for any purpose, and a popular lovers' spot. The Faculty Lounge and kitchen are attached to the Main Common Room. On the second and third floors are Old School (girls) and Red (boys) dorms.
  • DuPont Science Building - Hosting all science classes, it houses laboratories for all physical sciences, and is close by to the observatory. It also has a large technology classroom used for presentations.
  • King Hall - The School’s dining hall, it serves three meals daily. The main dining room features flags from every nation represented by a St. George's student.
  • Chapel - A classic Gothic chapel built in 1928 with John Nicholas Brown's donation and designed by Ralph Adams Cram, the whole school congregates in the Chapel for two services weekly, one religious and one in which a senior or faculty member gives a meaningful speech. In 2005, the Chapel organ was completely renovated, and now is also features a choral practice space and a new pipe organ. Once a week the elite chapel choir, consisting of nearly 80 students, sings. The choir is led by Dr. Gesualdo, known fondly as "Doc G" by the various members of the choir.
  • Little Chapel - The Little Chapel is the domain of the Brass Ensemble and the office of Tony duBourg. Affectionately known as "TduBs", the cantankerous conductor gives music "unlessons" and humorous stories to his proteges.
  • Hill Library - Contains more than 40,000 volumes and 75 periodicals. The library is a popular place among students to study during evening study hours. Students can also borrow DVDs and videos from the Library’s collection.
  • John Nicholas Brown ’18 Center - Named in honor of the school's illustrious alumnus John Nicholas Brown ’18, the Brown Center was dedicated in the spring of 2005. It houses the College Counseling Offices on the main level, deans’ offices on the second floor (director of studies, dean of students, dean of faculty), and the bookstore, Geronimo office, mail room and summer school office on the lower level.
  • Sixth Form House - Originally used as the school gymnasium in 1903, it became a Schoolhouse in 1911. Dormitory rooms for school prefects were also once located in the building. Currently the business office, alumni/ae development office, and publication office are housed in Sixth Form House.
  • William H. Drury and Richard Grosvenor Center for the Arts - home to St. George’s 450-seat theatre, where drama productions, musical performances, and lectures are held. The building also features two drawing studios, painting studio, scenery shop (used by Stage Crew for the drama productions), ceramics and photography studios, two computer labs, black box theatre, exhibition gallery, and many soundproof practice rooms.
  • Charles A. and Carol J. Hamblet Campus Center - Named in honor of the 10th headmaster and his wife, the Campus Center was dedicated in the fall of 2004. It includes a grille with a tasty menu available during the off-hours of King Hall, a great room that is the site of many of the school's smaller special events, a game room, and a meeting room.
  • Dorrance Field House - Built in 1987, the Field House includes four indoor tennis courts, three basketball courts and a ninth of a mile indoor track. This facility is also used for various social and academic functions such as Middlesex Dinners, Parents weekend events, college fairs and other student entertainment nights.
  • Hoopes Squash Center - The state-of-the-art Joseph C. Hoopes Sr. Squash Center, housing eight international glass-backed courts, was completed in 1996. Using the German made ASB court system, it is the finest facility of its kind in the country and serves during the summer months as the home for American Champion Mark Talbott’s Squash Academy. The Talbott Squash Academy is the official training center of the U.S. Squash Racquets Association and served as the site for both the National Junior Squash Championships in 1996 and 1998 and the Men’s Squash Softball Championships in February 1997.
  • Stephen P. Cabot and Archer Harman Ice Center - The $4.5 million Stephen P. Cabot and Archer Harman Jr. Ice Center, completed in November 2000, features two new first-class ice hockey facilities, and St. George’s is now one of the few New England schools to provide dual rinks for its hockey teams. Originally built in 1954 as an outdoor rink and enclosed in 1968, the Cabot Memorial rink has new boards, a completely new surface (200’ X 85’) and a new roof.
  • Norris D. Hoyt Pool - The Norris D. Hoyt Swimming Pool is an eight-lane pool with overflow gutters and a Colorado Timing System. Completed in the fall of 2004, the pool holds a large balcony seating area as well as many deck level glass viewing windows.
  • Ted Hersey Track - The track is all-weather, completed in the fall of 1996 by the same firm that designed and surfaced the Brown and Harvard University tracks. It is a six-lane, 400 meter oval, with an eight lane sprint chute along the east side. All St. George’s field events are held on the inside, with the exception of the javelin throw. It includes the high jump area at the northern end of the oval, the discuss throw area at the northwestern corner, the shotput throw area at the northeastern corner, the long and triple jump parallel along the western straight-away and the pole vault way parallel to the eastern straightaway. The area inside the oval is the Redway Field and is large enough for a full, international-sized soccer field(360 feet by 225 feet). The track is named for the longest-serving (1952-2004) faculty member in school history, who founded the programs in cross-country and track and field.
  • Blazer and Wood Tennis courts - Blazer Tennis Courts are hardcourt-surfaced courts located at the main entrance of the school. Both junior varsity teams host their games on these courts. The Wood Tennis Courts are six hardcourt-surfaced courts located across the street from the main entrance of the school. Varsity boys and girls use these courts during their home matches.
  • Playing Fields - Beautiful playing fields for all sports around the campus. The 10 athletic fields include Crocker Field (used for Varsity Football and Girls' Varsity Lacrosse), Elliott Field (used for Varsity Baseball), a JV baseball field, two field hockey fields, four lacrosse/soccer fields, and a softball field.

There are six boys’ dorms and six girls’ dorms. Two or three faculty members live with their families in apartments within each of the buildings. All dorm rooms are wired for telephone and internet access, and each dorm has a common room equipped with a microwave, television, and DVD player. Ralph Adams Cram, circa 1890 Ralph Adams Cram, (December 16, 1863 - September 22, 1942), was an American architect of collegiate and ecclesiastical buildings, often in the gothic style. ...

Daily life

Like most private schools in the ISL, St. George's operates on a six-day school week, meaning that classes meet on Saturday. Wednesdays and Saturdays, however, are half-days, with athletic games in the afternoons.


St. George's conducts the majority of its classes (with the exception of science and math classes) using the Harkness method, which encourages discussion between students and the teacher, and between students. The average class size according to the School's website is 10-12 students.


Rather than offering a Physical Education class, St. George's requires all its students to play sports for all six terms of their Third and Fourth Form years, and for any three terms during their Fifth and Sixth Form years. These sports range from a New England-champion hockey team to thirds lacrosse team.


Twice a week, students attend Chapel. Once a week, Chapel requires formal attire, and there is either a communion or morning prayer service according to the school's Episcopalian tradition. The other time, a senior or faculty member speaks to the school community, giving a Chapel Talk.


In the evenings, meetings are held for clubs and activities including music ensembles like the Brass Ensemble and Choir, a cappella groups (the all-female Snapdragons, and the all-male Hilltoppers), the Debate Team, and other extracurriculars.


Traditions

  • Zoo Day: A raucous school assembly occurring on Halloween, it was mockingly run by the Seniors posing as the faculty, and vice-versa. It was banned in 2005 after the Senior class violated certain faculty members' feelings. It is now replaced by the more kid-friendly Halloween Spooktacular and Senior Crypt Dance.
  • Middlesex Weekend: Middlesex School (the zebras) is St. George's athletic rival in the ISL. Each fall, on the final weekend of the season, every team plays against them. There are competitions in the week prior to see which form has the most school spirit. Banners are made, t-shirts are sold, and on Friday night a wooden zebra is burned in a bonfire while teams cheer it on.
  • Diman Cup: John Diman, the founder of St. George's, also founded the Portsmouth Abbey, just a few miles up Aquidneck Island. Since the Abbey is not a part of the ISL, the two schools have created their own competition. Wins and losses are tallied over the course of all three seasons. Traditionally, the Abbey takes a lead in the fall, winning both soccer and football, while St. george's comes back in the winter to tie things up. Often, the winner is not decided until the final track meet of the spring.
  • Pie Race: Begun by now retired science teacher Ted Hersey, the pie race is a 2.3-mile race in which most students of the school participate by wearing outrageous costumes or running in alternative manners. Mrs. Hersey baked the pies the winners received every year until the Herseys left the school in 2000. Prizes are given for fast running and also the best costumes.
  • Winter Formal: An alternative version of prom, the Winter Formal usually sees the whole school in limos, tuxedos and formal dresses. For years, the dance was held in King Hall, then moved to a student's Newport mansion, before settling at Belcourt Castle in Newport, Rhode Island.
  • Christmas Festival: A tradition that has existed almost since the inception of the school, it occurs on the last day before Christmas vacation. After a candlelit Chapel service where the story of Christmas is told in song and acted out by students, the entire school is ushered into King Hall to sing carols and eat dinner. Father Christmas used to hand out joke gifts to unsuspecting members of the school community, but that was also banned in 2005 and replaced with the Very Christmas Game Show.
  • V Form Ski Weekend: The only official class trip at St. George's School, every January, for a long 3-day weekend, the juniors travel to a selected ski resort and spend the weekend in hotel rooms and skiing/snowboarding. 2006's destination was the Rivergreen Resort at Loon Mountain, NH.
  • The Rock Guild: A collection of variations of rock songs performed by several groups of bands on campus. The two shows are held on Sunday evenings in the winter and spring.
  • Casino Night: Once a year, on a Saturday night, the Campus Center Great Room is transformed into a casino replete with poker and blackjack tables, craps, and even the famous wheel of fortune. Dress for this event is necessarily outrageous.
  • Headmaster's Holiday: When Spring comes to the Hilltop, the Headmaster chooses a random day in April, and declares a day of no classes. The current Headmaster, Mr. Peterson, has taken to sending funny emails to the school email system, and this year's was a 80's music triva quiz. Students generally get the Holiday when pristine weather occurs on the hilltop, so they can go down to the beaches and relax in the Quad.
  • Spring Dance Weekend: A relatively new tradition, in which bands come to play at the St. George's campus over the weekend in various locations, such as the Quad, the Great Room, and King Hall. The student rock guild also performs on this weekend.
  • Prize Day: The final day for the seniors as they graduate from St. George's School. Sixth formers have a chapel service with family members to begin the day and are accompanied by bagpipers as they process from the chapel out to the front lawn to join the rest of the school. Sixth formers are given their diplomas after the headmaster and the Prize Day speaker speak, the other prizes are handed out and the school song is sung. Typically, each sixth former gives the headmaster a small token in exchange for their diploma.

Belcourt Castle is the former summer cottage of Oliver Hazard Perry Belmont, located in Newport, Rhode Island. ...

Sports

The school is a member of the Independent School League (ISL) and the New England Preparatory School Athletic Council (NEPSAC). The Independent School League (ISL) is composed of sixteen prestigious New England preparatory schools that compete athletically and academically. ...

Music and drama

Currently, the school performs at least one major drama and one musical each year. Between major productions, students direct and perform one-act plays. In addition, students are able to take three different semester-long theatre courses, including two in acting and one in stagecraft.

Recent Theatrical Productions

Approximately half of the student body sings in one of the choruses. Chapel Choir, which requires its members to audition, is the school's largest musical group. The smaller male group, The Hilltoppers, and female group, The Snapdragons, audition motivated members from the school community.

The Schools maintains two ensembles and an orchestra. Playing for Chapel services and the New York Yacht Club's christening ceremonies, the Brass Ensemble plays mainly hymns and is led by conductor Tony duBourg. The Orchestra plays classical music and is led by Jenny Chang, who also leads the Jazz Ensemble. The St. George's Jazz Ensemble plays jazz of various eras and composes its own pieces, which are then played at school functions.


At the Campus Center Grill, Coffeehouse Hours are held in the Great Room, and guitarists frequently play.


"Jerusalem" (Hymn 110) is the school's preferred hymn. It is sung frequently in Chapel along with the School Hymn, set to Duke Street, and the St. George's Day Hymn.


The School Hymn


O Lord of Truth, and Power and Life
Whose service makes Thy children free,
Arm these, Thy followers, in their strife,
Who fall, if holding not by Thee.

Fill them with high and holy zeal
In lonely task or busy throng,
Their souls with heaven-born courage steel,
And in Thy strength, oh, make them strong.



Then, Lord, to every humble mind
Thy wisdom more and more impart,
Till all who seek, in faith may find
The blessing of the pure in heart.



Here let of Thy Love and Truth abound,
Changeless as yonder changeless sea,
And ever may these walls resound
With grateful voices praising Thee.

(Sung by choir)
For brighter than sun or star
That shine above this wind-swept slope
Thy greatness and Thy glory are;
Our sun of life and star of hope!



So, Lord, through each successive year,
Till earth's last night for them shall fall,
To sons and daughters who serve Thee here,
Be Thou Beginning, End, and All.


Extracurricular Activities & Clubs

There are other options for students that are not athletically-inclined. The Theater Department has a production every season of the year: in the Fall, there is a dance troupe that puts on several shows, including one on Parents' Weekend. In the Winter, the School Musical occurs, and at the end, hosts the school community, parents, and the local community for a 3-show weekend in March. In the Spring, the School Play is held in May.
