St. George's College is a Jesuit school serving the Catholic Community of Zimbabwe. It recognises, however, that everyone imbued with the Jesuit spirit, whether Christian or non-Christian, can enrich the College and it welcomes them as participators in its mission.
- The College believes that the personal development of each boy in all aspects of his life is the most important function of the school. It believes that this will only be fully possible where all who share responsibility for the boy's development - family, church and school, but especially teachers and boys - have the closest possible contact and co-operate together.
- The College believes that this is most likely to occur in a day school where boys, their families and teachers interact with each other on a regular basis in Community, Church and School. The College recognises however, that some boys need to have access to hostel accommodation, at least during the week.
- The College believes that its Catholicity is its most powerful aid in achieving this goal. Christian values are the starting point for the whole enterprise. It believes that it must be both open to and critical of the values around it. It must be outward-looking and involved in issues of justice and concern for the needy. The spirit of service to the community should be the hallmark of all in the College family.
- The College believes that the education it provides must be in accordance with the needs of Zimbabwe. The curriculum provided, the activities engaged in, the teachers employed and the College enrolment must reflect the needs and culture of the country.
- The College believes in excellence in every area in which it is involved: academic, cultural or sporting - in so far as this is possible. Nevertheless, bearing in mind its developed world location and the financial constraints this imposes, academic activities will have first claim on available resources. For the time being at any rate, the College will only provide an academic course of studies suitable to boys capable of O and A level work.
- The College believes that training in decision-making is an important element in education. To this end the area in which a boy may make free and informed choices will be enlarged as he progresses through the school.
- The College believes that the education it provides should be available to any deserving Catholic boy whether he is able to pay for it or not. To this end bursaries will be provided.
- The College believes that healthy social contact with girls is an important part of education. Closer contact with the Dominican Convent school, especially in extra-mural and cultural activities, will be promoted.
