Saint George’s Lower School is a great place to learn
Walking into the Lower School, your child begins a new journey into learning. Our community celebrates the joy of working and playing together. SGS will encourage your child to explore their diverse world, expand their creativity, develop their sense of self, and build lasting friendships. Our teachers provide an enriched environment that nurtures our core values of honesty, respect, generosity of spirit, and best efforts.
Our mission statement, “Inspiring scholars, athletes, and artists to serve and lead others,” drives our rigorous and innovative curriculum in the classroom, on the field or stage, and in the community. The personal teacher-student connection fosters self-expression, inquiry, critical thinking, and risk-taking. Together, we pursue our passion to be lifelong learners.
In the private school setting, our teachers are free to develop a comprehensive curriculum that strives to propel your child towards their potential. Your child is empowered to take ownership of their learning and is encouraged to translate their knowledge into action and reflection. Collaborating with others or working individually, your child will receive a solid foundation in the core subjects with emphasis in developing 21st Century Skills and global awareness.
Come visit the Lower School where the spirit of discovery, the excitement of learning, and the joy of being a child is boundless.

Social Emotional Learning, or SEL, is the framework that helps children and young adults learn critical skills for everyday success. Parents and family at home play a huge role in supporting their children’s social and emotional needs.
Saint George’s Center for Family Engagement is pleased to offer an opportunity for parents to learn more about our SEL program and how to incorporate skills taught at school into your routines at home. Parents will learn language, strategies, and activities that they can use to support the social emotional growth of their child. Social emotional learning isn’t just something that should be practiced and taught at school. SEL skills are life skills that kids can practice anywhere, especially at home.
Please join presenters, SGS counselor Meghan Kilgore and kindergarten teacher Erika Mullins, for a SEL Presentation for Lower School parents. Two sessions of the presentation will be offered on Thursday, January 20 at 8:30am and 6:30pm in the Dragon’s Den (basement of Metter’s Gym). Please RSVP which session you will attend to Meghan Kilgore at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, Jan. 14. Meghan and Erika are excited for this time of sharing and learning with parents back on campus as active members of our SGS community!
Each child is empowered to take ownership of their learning and is encouraged to translate their knowledge into action and reflection.
