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.

Shrikar Iragavarapu '15 Presents at The GSU Annual Research Symposium
4/16/2014
Shrikar Iragavarapu ’15 was selected to present a poster at The Georgia Southern University Annual Research Symposium on April 15. Working outside of the classroom, Shrikar and one student from Jenkins High School and Savannah State University produced the poster alongside of Dr.Kameswaro Rao Badri as part of a research project funded by the American Lung Association – Dalsemer Interstitial Lung Scholar Award (to Dr. Badri) at Savannah State University.  “We are researching the role of a certain protein called P311 in adipogenesis (fat production/energy storage) so that we can get one step closer to curing diabetes,” explains Shrikar. The Annual Research Symposium is a showcase of student and faculty research, which includes speakers, and poster and presentation sessions from all academic disciplines. This year’s keynote address was given by Dr. Steven Chu, Nobel Prize Winner in Physics and former U.S. Secretary of Energy. Click here to view the poster and read more about their research and findings. Additional information about the symposium can be viewed here.

Ides of March (or Idus Martii or Idus Martiae to Dr. Gavin’s Latin students) is a day on the Roman calendar that corresponds to March 15 and the death of Julius Cesar in 44 BC. Dr. Gavin has been celebrating this turn in Roman history with his Latin students for years by grilling out and playing pick-up games of Frisbee and volleyball.

What Makes You Happy?
2/26/2014
Finishing their study of ancient Greece, 9th graders were asked to choose from a variety of Greek topics such as architecture, philosophers, or sports and present their newly absorbed knowledge creatively. Several students chose to discuss the impact Greeks had on the modern world by producing videos that involved Socratic questioning (What is beauty?, What is truth?, What is courage?, etc.) and Aristotle’s ideas on happiness. What evolved was a charismatic piece featuring students from all three divisions, faculty, parents, and the community. Take a look at one of the videos here!
