The report results from more than six months’ work, interviews of more than 150 witnesses, and the review of thousands of pages of documents.

Our investigation could not have been done without the willingness of so many alumni—children who came to St. George’s when they were as young as 13 or 14; now adults in their 40s, 50s and 60s—who displayed the courage to speak to total strangers about some of the darkest and most painful moments of their lives. St. George’s School also cooperated fully with our work; we thank the school as well.

We hope this report helps the St. George’s community, and the public, understand what happened at St. George’s, and why.
