From The Savannah Country Day School

Visitors to our school often ask, “what is it that makes Country Day unique?” Our answer is simple: Country Day is a school which sets very high expectations for its students—ethically, academically, artistically, and athletically—but one in which teachers work with amazing diligence and care to help all students meet those expectations. It is a school whose wide offerings in academics, athletics, the arts, and extracurricular activities give students incredible opportunities to discover their unique gifts and talents and to develop the confidence that grows from knowing that they have something of value to contribute to others. And for parents who want their children challenged with high expectations in a warm, supportive environment, Savannah Country Day is the best investment in a child’s future.

    My experience as an SCDS Hornet has been unforgettable. I have grown so much here, both academically and socially. The dedicated teachers, small class sizes, and rigorous curriculum all contribute to an outstanding education. Additionally, there's such a strong sense of community that you can immediately feel the moment you walk on campus. Everyone is really part of the Country Day family, and I am so glad I got to be for four years!

    I was very lucky to go to a school like SCDS because it has prepared me a lot for college. However I wish there were more club opportunities. Sometimes it felt as though there were limited options on sports and clubs, with the school just recently getting a lacrosse team, and other popular clubs like Robotics shutting down around the time I wanted to join them. In the end though, the teachers and rigor at SCDS has made me to be the student that I am, and I am better off than I would be without Savannah Country Day.
    great college prep school, if only other aspects could be adapted to the changing world view that has been recently adopted. I have witnessed many traditions challenged because of the ignorance of inequality from the board members. however, I do appreciate the fact that this school has prepared me for the transition into college. The student body could use more diversity but the overall atmosphere is friendly as the students help each other to tackle the academic challenges thrown between us and the diploma. Each challenge we defeat leaves us more experienced, and it really aids in the transition. LOVE LOVE LOOOOOVE the close relationship between students and teachers, it's what makes the heavy work load manageable, because you work with your teacher, instead of opposed to them. They genuinely care about your well being and the whole school community becomes your family.
