I love Country Day so much! They really prepare you for college and show you firsthand how classes are like in college. They are very supportive and willing to help you with schoolwork, college applications, and many other things. The students are very united and loving towards one another, and the community as a whole is very connected and supportive.

Country Day prepared me for college like no other school in the area could have. I attended K-12 and can attest to the education and community. The teachers truly care about your education. I remember the first semester of college feeling like it was a breeze while my new friends were struggling to make C's and B's. I was more than prepared to be at one of the top schools in the nation. My fondest memories from Savannah are at Country Day, whether it be homecoming week in upper school, mini-mester in middle school or Mr. Eswine's science class in lower school. Country Day is one of the best schools in Georgia and I am grateful for the experience I had there.
I have always loved my time at Country Day. Since the beginning, I enjoyed my lower school experience. The school does a great job at engaging the younger kids by incorporating hands-on learning and using different styles to reach many ways of learning. My fondest memories are the active experiences. In third grade science class, individuals grew their choice in vegetables, learned about gardening and its importance, graphed its growth throughout the year, and took their plant home after learning how to stir-fry in class. One fun to watch project is the Fifth grader's ancient egyptian culture. One student might build a pyramid in art class; another might act out their death rituals; another might have a fashion display. Throughout my years, I have experience a sense of individuality in my education. Continuing into middle and high school, students are hold a responsibility to their education which allows for a lot of freedom. Not only do I feel like I have earned an overall knowledge across all subjects but also skills across the arts. Lower schoolers have music and art and are given different options by third grade (for example in musics, orchestra, jazz, chorus, or general music) Electives in the arts are required for most of middle and one year of high school, although many continue until graduation. Having so many options, it's easy to find an interest. Country Day also puts a high focus on "character" from a young age. Lessons on virtues are taught and students discuss things like the importance of their school's honor code. One of my favorite part of my education has been my connections with my teachers. Classes sizes are usually kept small, especially in middle and high school, so students get to know their teachers very well. I loved my connections with my teachers.
