Located in southeastern Pennsylvania, near Philadelphia, George School is rooted in centuries-old Quaker values and the belief that the world can be made better for all. At this co-educational boarding and day school for students in grades 9-12, students transcend cultural, religious, and other differences to come together in a joyful, respectful, and inclusive community of learners; here, they become committed to high academic standards, thoughtful global citizenship, personal integrity, unity in diversity, and lifelong service to others.

Reporting to the Director of Enrollment Management and Strategic Initiatives, the Director of Marketing and Strategic Communications is George School’s chief communications officer and a leader in institutional strategy, overseeing a Marketing and Communications staff of three.
