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.

French Ambassadors Study Regional Cuisine
Upper School French students are celebrating all of the geographical regions they have studied this year with some tasty treats! Each student chose a particular French region to study and became the “cultural ambassador” of the area—a project that finished with students preparing, from scratch, a dish from their region. Bon Appétit et C'était délicieux !

Hornets Get Knee Deep In Bog Exploration
Chemistry and Biology students were knee deep in the campus bog, taking samples and learning more about the environmental impact of the bog. Chemistry students discussed the differences in water quality in the bog in comparison to the campus stream they previously visited, while Biology students began sampling the area to see how specific plant species affect the area. The lab challenges students to use what they have learned in class all year-long and apply it to a real life scenario where their observations and data can positively impact the greater campus.
