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 Theatre15, Mock Trial, the Quiz Bowl, and the Math Team.

Physics Students Take Study of Vectors Outside
A light sprinkle did not deter Mr. Weber’s Physic students from taking their lesson about Vectors outside on Monday. Students were challenged with hiding and mapping treasures throughout campus. Not the typical treasure map though, these students had to decide the exact magnitude and direction of each displacement vector using a tape measure and protractor. After completing their own map, groups switched and had fun following the vectors of another group, while mapping their route to find the treasures.

Anatomy Students Mix Art and Science
Mr. Hooker's Upper School Anatomy students have been studying muscles by combining their science skills with art.  The students are building the muscles onto model skeletons as a means to better understand the complementary nature of anatomical structure and function and how bones and muscles work together to provide movement.  Learning the major skeletal muscles in both a visual and kinesthetic method will enhance comprehension of muscle location, size, shape, attachments, fiber direction, and muscle action. As students build together, they learn together.

College Counselors Host Parent Breakfast
Every September, the College Counseling Office holds a breakfast for the parents of both seniors and juniors to discuss the application calendar, financial aid (and scholarships), and to answer any questions parents may have. This year’s event, held on September 10, provided an opportunity for Mary Beth Fry and Dawn Brown-Piatt to speak with senior parents who are in the midst of the application process, as well as junior parents who are curious and might have questions.

Water Balloon Target Practice
Congratulations to Logan Miller, Daley Cass, Jack Barnes and Will Rittmeyer, the newest members of a revered group of Physics students. In 23 years of the "Water Balloon Target Practice" assignment, only six student groups have successfully hit their target: Upper School teacher Adam Weber.  Click HERE to see video of a practice launch.
