The Alumni Association of Saint George’s School is YOU! There are no dues. You are a member by virtue of your walk across Graduation Bridge. Former students who did not complete their senior year but left the school in good standing also are members. As alumni of SGS, you experienced the unique opportunity to receive not only an outstanding education; you were also an integral part of an environment that provided both staff and students with a sense of community and belonging.
In the Inland Northwest alone there are over 500 alumni and former students. Including Seattle and places like the Bay Area, Southern California, New England, and the Midwest, you number more than 1,100, and those are just the ones we know about. Saint George’s continuing reputation as the area’s best school is due in large measure to the caliber of its alumni and former students.
The Alumni Association encourages all of our alumni to continue as part of our SGS community long after they leave the school. The continued commitment of our alumni is part of what truly allows Saint George’s School to continue our tradition of excellence.
A small group of dedicated alumni and former students living in the Spokane area make up the Alumni Board of Directors. The Board is dedicated to promoting a continuing and mutually beneficial relationship between our alumni and Saint George’s School.

Seven recent SGS graduates returned to campus on January 3rd for a panel discussion with students and parents about college life and the IB Diploma. In case you missed their insights, we have posted videos of their Q&A Session with Students in Grades 8-12 (20 minutes long) and Q&A Session with Parents of Students in Grades 8-12 (67 minutes long) on the SGS YouTube Channel.
As they reflected on their skills in colleges across the country, they gave these insights when asked “how did the holistic approach of the IB shape you moving forward in life”:
- Helped my critical thinking;
- Made me a better learner;
- Allowed me to explore your interests and things I never thought I would;
- Encouraged me to see across the lines;
- Allowed me to take a subject and use it to help me in another subject (gave an example of how a Spanish class helped a History class);
- Allowed me to combine learning in all subjects;
- Allowed me to see the connection between different classes and how they rely on each other.
Please watch to see the full Q&A sessions and contact Elizabeth Tender, IB Coordinator, if you have any questions at email@example.com.
