Saint George’s College, founded in 1936 and run by the Congregation of Holy Cross, is among the most exclusive and upper-class schools in Santiago, Chile. According to Seminarium Head Hunting, fully one third of the CEO's of the top 200 companies of Chile are graduates of St. George's. 
Originally an all-boys school, Saint George’s College was made co-educational in 1973. First located in the then-exclusive Pedro de Valdivia section of Providencia, in 1970 it was relocated to Vitacura.
A splinter group of parents and teachers, dissatisfied with the Liberation Theology measures imposed by Father Gerard Whelan during the early 1970s, broke off in 1972 and formed Colegio Tabancura, an Opus Dei-run boy's school. Since then is know as the "rebel" amongst the group of exclusive schools of Santiago, mostly because of the active participation of its alumni in political and social activities that are not usual in the tight Santiago's upper-class.
Among Saint George’s College's internationally renown alumni are José Miguel Insulza (Class of '61, Socialist politician, Secretary General of the Organization of American States), Andrés Pascal Allende (Class of '62, Marxist revolutionary), Andrés Wood (Class of '83, film director/producer, who directed the film Machuca, on events at Saint George's College around the time of the military coup of '73), Gonzalo Lira (Class of '85, author, film director).
