Savannah Christian Preparatory School’s name signifies a dual focus: college preparation and Christian education. Students are prepared by the faculty to ensure they not only excel in the competitive college world but also thrive throughout college and life. It is this high standard of the rigorous curriculum and moral standards which demonstrates how Savannah Christian is Boldly Christian and Unquestionably Academic.
Earning a diploma from Savannah Christian is a passport to a world of opportunities for advanced education and future success.

No two children are alike nor do they learn the same way. Savannah Christian Lower School nurtures the child who exhibits learning differences, using data to target needs and a wide variety of strategies to promote understanding. We also celebrate victories!
Learning Support Center
The Learning Resource Center provides daily instruction in the areas of Reading, Spelling and Math. Children are referred for this service by the classroom teacher or parent. Data is used to identify specific needs and a plan is developed to target those areas. A capable and compassionate teacher works with each child, individually or in a small group, for at least 45 minutes daily. Children “graduate” from this program as soon as targeted goals are met!
