George School is a coeducational Friends boarding school and day college-preparatory school for students in grades 9 - 12. The total enrollment is 526 students. George School is located in Newtown, Pennsylvania.
George School was founded in 1893 by women and men of faith whose vision was to create an educational community rooted in the spirit of the Quaker experiment begun by George Fox in 17th century England. They wanted this school's environment to encourage spiritual and intellectual integrity. In its second century, that vision is still the school's inspiration. Today the community includes a diverse group of adults and students who value academic rigor and Quakers' commitment to service, social justice, simplicity and quiet Meeting for Worship. The school's motto, "Mind the Light", reflects Quakers' strong belief in the presence and power of the inner light - that of God within each individual. The Light makes each soul sacred and worthy of respect. In a Quaker school, teachers work to assure students of their individual worth, helping them refine gifts that are already evident or uncover gifts that haven't been developed. They believe that if young people are convinced of their own value they will, in turn, seek and speak to the good in others.
