St Georges is firstly an academic school that teaches the highly rated IEB curriculum. Our classes are smaller than 15 students allowing us to care for each person as a individual. We do not only assist our young students to get into Universities, we are skilled University academics and we prepare them for their first year University experience.
We teach the Christian worldview, providing a warm, caring environment that develops not only the intellectual intelligence (IQ), but also focuses on Emotional Intelligence (EQ), Spiritual Intelligence (SQ) and Physical Intelligences (SQ) in our young students. A combination of these intelligences are major determinants of future success of young people to function at University and beyond.
We also know that lively young minds find stimulus through interaction with each other and through the teaching and encouragement provided by a talented, dedicated and caring teaching staff. We not only lead in fields of academics but also offer a verity of sporting and cultural activities to promote and develop an emotionally intelligent person that is grounded in his/her moral, social and spiritual values.
It is also important to understand that South Africa faces a number of challenges that can only be met if it has innovative, well-educated, and entrepreneurial citizens who, whatever their walk of life, have the spirit and inquisitiveness to think in new ways, and the courage to meet and adapt to the challenges facing them.
Because education is key to shaping young peoples attitudes, skills and culture, it is vital that entrepreneurship education is addressed from a school going age. Entrepreneurship education is essential not only to shape the mindsets of young people but also to provide the skills and knowledge that are central to developing an entrepreneurial culture.
A entrepreneurial culture will promote a dynamic economy, which is innovative and able to create the jobs that are needed. Our young people who will launch and successfully develop their own commercial or social ventures or become innovators in the wider organisations in which they work
In an innovative and stimulating environment, we provide an education of body, mind and soal. We assist young people to become happy, confident and skilled, people of hope and personal integrity, with a deep sense of justice and compassion, and with this a sense of responsibility to transform the world around them.
