Our Immediate Requests of St George’s School

Dozens of alumni have come forward since The Boston Globe’s December 15th article Former student forces R.I. prep school to confront its past.

Currently, they must go through a lawyer, who is also the partner of the School’s counsel, to share their experiences or seek assistance with therapy costs. Many of them have told us that they do not feel safe doing this.

We, the undersigned, insist that St. George’s School establishes without delay:

  1. An independent, clinician-directed assistance fund for former students who need care and treatment as the result of being sexually assaulted while at the School;
  2. An objective and thorough investigation, conducted by an independent third-party, and with full disclosure of the findings to the School community;
  3. A disclosure to its alumni of the important facts discovered through that independent investigation.

Many of these cases of abuse reach back over thirty years, but some are more recent. St. George’s must take responsibility for the harms caused by its neglect, and immediately help those who continue to suffer from those crimes.
