St. George's School

372 Purgatory Rd, Middletown, RI 02842

St. George's was founded by Rev. John B. Diman, who later established Portsmouth Abbey, and in 1901 moved to its present, 200-acre campus overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and the city of Newport. St. George's offers a traditional college preparatory curriculum with opportunities for numerous electives and advanced work. Art offerings—drawing, painting, printmaking, architecture, photography and art history—religious studies, and computer applications and programming are important curricular features. The music program offers diploma credit for private instruction in voice and instrumental music. Students attend from many states and foreign countries, and graduates enter leading colleges. St. George's conducts work and study internships, as well as year-round research cruises for full academic credit that allow students to live and study for six weeks aboard the school research vessel, Geronimo. Marine biology and field research concentrate on the study of sea turtles, while oceanography (including meteorology and navigation) and English are taught by the on-board staff; pupils take other courses by correspondence with their teachers at the school. All incoming freshmen purchase tablet computers, and most campus buildings feature wireless Internet access.
