Attracting students from nine surrounding counties, Savannah Christian Middle School stands committed to work with families, the local church, and the community in educating students about how to apply Biblical principles with practical everyday challenges. Serving as the "hinge" between the lower and upper schools, Savannah Christian Middle School works diligently with the other divisions in fulfilling the SCPS vision: "Developing the whole person to the glory of God." This vision is reflected in classroom instruction where students take an active role in their education through self-discovery as well as a plethora of other strategies. The school offers one of the most innovative elective offerings in the United States with the "Initiative Program." Through the Initiative Program, experts in fine arts and athletics from the community provide services daily to students to earn elective credits. Students who choose Initiative Classes enjoy the benefit of taking lessons such as piano, ceramics, voice, baseball, soccer, and illustration that are built into the school day rather than taking similar lessons after school. This allows more time in the evening with family and the opportunity to begin homework from a college preparatory middle school where rigor and quality work are a requirement for all. A second unique elective program that Savannah Christian Middle School has adopted into its curriculum is the Cross Fit for Kids physical education class. The school proudly has taken the challenge to promote a healthier lifestyle for all students.
