Who was St. George?

The mythology of Saint George is the most famous version of a story told by all people since the dawn of humankind.  It is the legend of the lone hero facing the powerful forces that seek to destroy.  Through courage, fortitude, and the strength of will, the hero can vanquish any challenge, no matter how ferocious.

We have chosen the iconography of Saint George the Dragonslayer because it symbolizes the ability of an educated mind to overcome the dangers of ignorance in our lives.

At St. George Academy, each student is the hero and although the task is great and fraught with peril – they will prove victorious.
