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.

Not to worry--this was all part of Mr. Hooker's ninth-grade Physics​ class experiment on work and energy transformation! Students engineered​roller coasters and used​ measurements from those designs to successfully move an object through their roller coaster using potential and kinetic energy.
