The Savannah Country Day School seeks to prepare students of academic and personal promise to meet with confidence, imagination, and integrity the challenges of college and of life. In partnership with supportive families, we strive to cultivate in each student the desire and the discipline to grow in wisdom, to lead lives of personal honor, to appreciate beauty, to pursue physical well-being, and to serve others with a generous, compassionate spirit.


At Savannah Country Day, the Fine Arts program exposes students to visual art, general music, choral music, jazz band, theater, drama, photography, orchestra, and technology-based visual arts. Our talented Fine Arts instructors work to develop the student’s ability to access, interpret, and evaluate imagery, movement, and sound; develop visual/spatial/hearing intelligence; and to build a life-long appreciation and understanding of the arts. 


With over 50 teams in 15 sports, the athletic offerings for students at Country Day are endless. A supportive school community and decorated coaches help to provide an environment of excellence, both on and off the field.  

Global Online Academy

Global Online Academy (GOA) offers SCDS students the opportunity to learn alongside peers from around the world. GOA courses further enrich the Country Day experience by allowing students explore their passions with classes that are outside of the traditional course catalogue.

Earlier this week, we celebrated a big milestone in the construction of Mingledorff Hall with a “Topping Out” ceremony to mark the structural completion of our future Upper School STEM building. Prior to the ceremony, we invited each Hornet — young and old — to sign (or thumbprint) the final beam, making their mark (literally!) on the future of Country Day!

    My career has turned out to be so fulfilling, and I look forward to each day! Moreover, my children are happy, safe, and well-rounded thanks to SCDS."
    Carrie Vetrovsky, SCDS Teacher & Parent

    We have been thrilled with how our daughter is thriving since transferring to SCDS for middle school. We are so appreciative of the faculty, staff and fellow parents who have eagerly guided us through this academic year. The school has exceeded our expectations."
    Amy and Chad Brock, current parents 

    In my business (as a NASA engineer), we have to launch a rocket within an extremely tight window that's just minutes long because small deviations at that early, fiery moment have an enormous impact on the ultimate destination of the spacecraft. I believe that my time at SCDS, though brief and more than twenty years ago, continues to have a similar impact on my life."
