Environmental Stewardship

At Savannah Country Day, we’re proud to have a legacy of environmental stewardship and sustainability. We’re home to Savannah’s only LEED Silver-certified Lower School. Our student-run organic gardens supply fresh vegetables and herbs for the campus dining hall. Plus, we offer inspiring outdoor learning spaces like the Morrison Pangaea Garden, the Butterfly Garden and the Shakespeare Garden.
 
In 2012, we were one of only 12 independent schools in the country to be recognized as a Green Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education. In 2011, the National Wildlife Federation named us the nation’s first Green Flag Eco-School, applauding our sustainable management of facilities and our commitment to environmental instruction. We’re committed to doing our part to encourage environmental sustainability and global awareness across our campus.
 
We understand that sustainability must inform everything we do – in the classroom, on campus and beyond. Our long-running recycling program is supported by our own campus recycling center, utilized by not only our students and faculty, but our families as well. Even our dining hall staff participate by composting food scraps for later use in our campus gardens.
