Building Fine Young Men... One Boy at a Time.
 
At St. George’s, in the words of our Mission, “we build fine young men.” Since 1930, we have provided our students with a challenging and supportive learning environment within which to grow, mature and flourish. Today, research continues to support the values of single-sex education. We now know that young men and women learn differently, and schools that can cater to the unique needs of each gender typically provide more enriching, supportive, and relevant environments for their students. At Saints, our commitment to boys’ education includes a broad and inclusive educational experience reflecting best practices in boys’ learning. Embracing our Vision of being “Canada’s World School for Boys,” we graduate young men with a global outlook who are able and willing to meet the challenges of a complex and rapidly changing world

As you explore our website, or if you visit our two beautiful campuses, you will gain a fuller insight into what makes Saints so special. You will see fully engaged and happy students. You also will see dedicated and talented teachers challenging and supporting their students in a curriculum that offers over 50 academic, over 50 athletic, and over 50 club electives between Grades 7 and 12. We are a community that inspires our students to grow in mind, heart, body, and spirit. We are a school in which boys are able to find and pursue their passions.

We warmly welcome prospective families and are pleased to provide them with personal tours at their convenience. Our goal is always to help you discover whether Saints is the right fit for your son. Come and see for yourself the essence of St. George’s School, not only in our classrooms, but also on our playing fields and in our theatre, gymnasiums, libraries, and dining halls. As you do, you will begin to understand why our graduates love Saints and go on to make remarkable contributions in a broad range of personal and professional endeavours.

Take a closer look. Come and visit St. George’s School! We look forward to welcoming you to our community.

Best wishes,

Dr. Tom Matthews
Headmaster

Book Drive Benefactorsexpand



6/21/2013
Every year, St. George's School holds many great fundraisers, including clothing drives, food sales, and other creative events. This year, a small group of Grade 8s wanted to try something a little different. These students got together to hold a book drive involving both the Senior and Junior Schools to collect children’s books in support of Strathcona Elementary School in the Downtown East Side.

In total, the book drive collected over 300 children’s books and over 600 books in total. This definitely would not have been possible without the help of the wonderful Saints community.

The book drive team would also like to give a special thank-you to McKellar & Martin and Raincoast books, two fantastic publishers who donated a large amount of children’s books to our cause. The team strongly suggests that you check out their collections of interesting books.

Once again, thank you all for your donations and support, we look forward to another great book drive next year!

BC’s Top Businessmen Mentor St. George’s School Entrepreneursexpand

What do Order of Canada recipient and Chancellor of Emily Carr University Jake Kerr, Junior Trivia inventor Shawn Pozer, video game company owner Horatio Kemeny, and CEO of Western Canada’s largest greenhouse vegetable company, Steven Newell, all have in common? They are all graduates of St. George’s School and were all judges at a unique business competition held recently at the west end, not-for-profit school for boys.

Modeled after the popular CBC show, The Dragons’ Den, five short-listed teams of St. George’s boys each presented their pitch for a new product to four graduates of the school who, themselves, have been recognized for their own business accomplishments throughout British Columbia and beyond. The event, which was called the The Dragons’ Lair, was hosted at the school on May 31, 2012.

The five St. George’s teams included Grade 11 students Connor Gill and Rajeev Bagga (Ignition Energy), who presented their new brand of energy drink; Grade 10 student, Scott Munro (EZ Electronic Accessories), who pitched protective and customizable electronic accessories; Grade 11 twin brothers Aiden Tong and Joshua Tong (Yebo Beef Jerky), who profiled their South African-based beef jerky product; Grade 10 student Spencer Quong (Polar Knights) who highlighted an art-based product with a philanthropic focus tied to the World Wildlife Foundation; and Grade 11 student Matthew Zhang (IDezign) who showed us his idea for unique wrapping that can be used on everything from iPhones to high-end luxury cars.

Consistent with the school’s belief in authentic learning, the competition encouraged the participants to demonstrate their entrepreneurial spirit while applying skills in critical thinking, problem solving, and effective oral communication.

The winner of the competition and recipient of a $2,000 prize, which was sponsored by the school’s alumni association, known as the Georgians, was Scott Munro of EZ Electronics Accessories. To view video highlights from the evening, click here.

Founded in 1930, St. George's School is a world-class boys' independent school located in Vancouver that offers a day program to boys in Grades 1 to 12 and a boarding program to students in Grades 8 to 12.
