    History

    Founded in 1893 by the Society of Friends (Quaker), George School is a coed boarding and day school enrolling 545 students in grades 9 through 12. Located on a 240-acre suburban campus in Newtown, Pennsylvania, George School is situated within an hour of Princeton NJ and Philadelphia PA, 2 hours from NYC, and 3 hours from Washington DC. George School’s rigorous academic program includes both the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma and AP courses. George School is a very diverse community with 24% students of color and 23% international students. Annually over $8M is offered in financial aid to roughly 50% of the student body. George School students have a remarkable feast of classes, programs, and trips to choose from. As graduates, they go out into the world filled with amazing experiences, lifelong friends, and a taste for adventure.

    MISSION STATEMENT: With Quaker tradition as its touchstone and academic excellence at its core, George School seeks to develop citizen scholars cheerfully committed to openness in the pursuit of truth, to service and peace, and to the faithful stewardship of the earth. We want our students to treasure learning for its own sake and to use it to benefit a diverse world. Above all, we want them to “let their lives speak.”
