A George School education is designed to open intellectual and creative doors and keep them open. Our academic program lets students chart their own path—one that is as challenging as it is customized to them.

This might include an IB Diploma, AP credits, a sampling of subjects that interest them, and/or an in-depth exploration of a single field, and academic year study abroad opportunities. With the help of seasoned advisors, students will create a course of study and academic inquiry that sets them up for the future in the best way possible.
