61 students of St. George’s boarding school were sexually abused in ’70s and ’80s
At least 61 former students of the prestigious St. George’s boarding school were sexually abused during the 1970s and 1980s, and one in five female students were assaulted by a single faculty member, a bombshell new report revealed.
The highly-anticipated findings are the result of a third-party investigation following decades of allegations of sex abuse linked to the elite school which has been part of the pedigree of some of the most prominent American families, including the Bushes, the Vanderbilts and the Astors.
“In the 1970s and 1980s, St. George’s School betrayed the trust of the many St. George’s students who became the targets of sexual abuse when they came to the school, and likewise betrayed the trust of parents who sent those students to St. George’s with the expectation that it would be a safe place for them to live and learn,” Boston lawyer Martin Murphy wrote in the report.

9 out of 10 of the perpetrators are never brought to justice and never appear on sex offender registries.
They are protected by New York State laws.
