Founded in 1896 in Bulawayo by Fr Marc Barthelemy SJ, St George's moved to Harare (Salisbury) in 1927, due the site in Bulawayo preventing any opportunities for further expansion of the school. Now set in its magnificent forty hectare grounds (adjacent to the National Botanical Gardens), the College, which is one of the architectural sites of Harare, boasts of its world-class facilities that allows for all of its students to receive the best possible opportunities for growth and holistic development in all areas of school life.
St George's College is a Roman Catholic school and brings together an unique, exhilarating blend of academic excellence, social engagement, sporting prowess and cultural enrichment - all entered around its Jesuit ethos. This is a foundation upon which St George’s College will continue to be relevant, influential and a significant educational institution in the region for years to come.
The College currently has an enrolment of around 750 students ranging from Form 1 (Year 8) to Upper Six (Year 13), including a Boarding Department of over a hundred students. St George's offers the public examinations of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE), with a choice of sixteen subjects at IGCSE Level, and thirteen subjects at Advanced Level, in order to cater for the varying interests, needs and abilities of its students.
Aspiring to the highest international standards, over fifteen sporting disciplines are available on a seasonal basis, ranging from Athletics to Waterpolo to Rugby to Volleyball. Its Boat Club is based at the Mazowe Dam, and its Golfers are permitted to use Royal Harare nearby. In addition to its sporting programme, the College also provides a full range of diverse cultural activities (over sixty clubs) - providing students the opportunity to develop skills needed in a changing world, and to learn the value of doing everything for the Greater Glory of God.
Over the years, 41 Old Georgians (Alumni) have been awarded Rhodes Scholarships, 29 have been ordained as Catholic Priests (12 of which are Jesuits) and numerous Old Georgians have gone on to represent the College and Zimbabwe as a whole on the sporting front, both nationally and internationally at the Olympics.
As we celebrated our Quasquicentennial (125th Anniversary) in 2021, we looked back at our rich history with deep gratitude and now we look ahead to our exciting future. We look forward to establishing more new connections with individuals and different groups, seeking forever to be true to our charism of transforming the world into a better place through education.
