Upper School

Students are encouraged to explore their talents and interests beyond their classroom experiences through participation in co-curricular activities. A great variety of opportunities is available for students to develop skills in leadership and collaborative work. Each class annually elects class officers who work under the direction of a faculty class advisor. Also, numerous community service opportunities are coordinated by the student volunteer council. Club leaders meet quarterly as a Club Council.
Following is a brief listing of some of the more than forty activities offered at Savannah Country Day Upper School. Seven of the co-curricular organizations go to regional competitions, including Advanced Acting, Mock Trial, Quiz Bowl, and Math Team.

Upper School Psychology Studies Childhood Development With Kindergarten Students
One of the perks of being a PreK through 12 school, is the opportunity for student interaction of all grades. Upper School Psychology students recently got to experience this as they spent time with our Little ‪Hornets‬ as part of their study on childhood development. Students interacted with Kindergarteners, setting up a few experiments to see how children learn and acquire perception skills. It’s not only a great way for our Psychology students to gain real world experience from what they have learned in their textbooks, but for our younger Hornets to interact with their older peers in a fun and challenging exercise!

AP Spanish Students Explore Immigration Debate
