About St George's Independent School
St. George’s began as a simple idea, discussed over dinner in a tiny Episcopal rectory in 1959. Within the year, the idea became a school committed to laying strong educational foundations, forging fine character, and doing so bravely and joyfully.
The suburban Germantown campus is home to the original lower school, a place dedicated to seeing every person as a child of God. It’s also the place of origin for a curriculum that marries classic content with active lessons, where sophisticated research merges with the simple understanding that children learn best when learning feels fun.
Our second lower school campus is in the heart of Memphis. This campus, funded by donors since 2001, makes possible a St. George’s education for families who might not otherwise have financial or logistical access to an independent school setting.
Nestled in old-growth forests and bordering the Wolf River, the Collierville campus houses our middle and upper school. Collierville is the platform from which we launch our graduates into fine colleges and rewarding careers. It also serves as the convergence point for newly matriculating Germantown and Memphis campus students – as well as students from ma...ny other schools – as they unite in middle school.
Throughout their experience, St. George’s students do what kids naturally do: notice differences, explore them, and transcend them to form friendships. We create an atmosphere where students find common ground despite their different backgrounds, and where they are prepared for college and careers in today’s global world.
