Living out our mission, to develop the whole person to the glory of God, at Savannah Christian Lower School is what sets us apart from others. When students step on our campus they know they will be loved, challenged, and developed academically, socially, and spiritually.

Our students are developed as a whole person by teachers that are committed to our mission.Through engaging hands-on learning in our classrooms, dynamic enrichment opportunities, and field trips to discover the rich history of the city of Savannah, students are challenged academically.  

The lower school team is committed to doing what is best for each student. Our lower school counselor partners daily with families, students engage in weekly chapels, and teachers model their faith everyday with their students to support them spiritually.

Savannah Christian Lower School is focused on developing the whole family. As a part of an independent school that serves families from birth to twelfth grade, we are equipped to develop the whole person, while engaging with the family long term. Through playing on sports teams, participating in the school musical, and interacting with students at all divisions, students are developed socially.

The strength of Savannah Christian Preparatory Lower School is the commitment and focus of our team to care for each student by achieving our mission. Each student is known as an individual and supported to be their best in an environment that can partner with their families before, during, and well beyond their years in the lower school.
