Savannah Christian Preparatory School - Building 10

Savannah Christian Preparatory School is at an important moment in its history. Although our academic, athletic and fine arts programs continue to achieve excellence, we recognize the challenge to continually grow and improve these programs. We believe we have developed a plan for the future that will allow us to implement new strategies to educate our young people.

Our plan is underway to relocate our outstanding Middle School to the Chatham Parkway campus. Our capital campaign “Tomorrow Begins Today” is the foundation for success as Savannah Christian Preparatory School moves firmly into the 21st Century.

Campaign Contributions to Date: $1,416,232.10

Renovations and Expansions

Renovations and expansions of our current Chatham Parkway facilities will aid in the realignment of space, buildings and equipment to accommodate the move of our Middle School to the Chatham Parkway campus.

Completed Projects:

  • Removed the old caretaker’s home on property.
  • Removed the modular building near the Lower School playground.
  • Conducted soil testing and engineering prep-work to facilitate field work on the Chatham Parkway Campus.
  • Merged the DeRenne Lower School with Chatham Parkway Lower School in August 2016.
  • DeRenne Sale – Our sale of the DeRenne is complete. Proceeds from the sale will be applied to the construction of the new Middle School building and/or any urgent project needed to facilitate the one campus plan as deemed by the Board.
  • Removed the “Old Daycare buildings to prepare the site for the expanded Middle School Campus.

In Progress Projects:

  • New Middle School Home ($3,100,000) We are completely renovating the “Old Daycare Building” to provide new classroom space consisting of 12 academic classrooms with faculty and student restroom facilities.
  • Doyle Kelley Gym ($600,000) Renovation plans are in the works for what was formerly the Upper School Gym. It will be named the Doyle Kelley Gym in honor of his many years of faithful service and love to Savannah Christian Prep. The renovation will include updated locker rooms, offices, weight room and flooring.
  • Campus Traffic Plan – We are revising our traffic flow to assure an efficient plan to accommodate the increased number of cars on campus when we bring all students to one campus.
  • Field and Site Work – We are preparing fields, irrigation, well upgrades and sidewalks. Improvements are being made to the football and practice fields to accommodate all Upper and Middle School student athletes.  An Upper School football practice field will be built near the Eckburg Center.
