We are a community of learners and leaders where teaching and learning are stimulating, interesting, and Christ-centered. Students, staff, and parents are supportive of one another and work cooperatively to reach ever higher academic, social, emotional, and spiritual competencies. Differences are accepted and respected by students, staff, and parents. We follow many pathways to learning while sharing goals that unite us, a common core of knowledge, and a belief in biblical truths.
It is our desire to learn more about you and your family and how we may best serve your child. We seek to develop each student: academically, athletically, socially and most of all, spiritually. In turn, we are seeking students who want to integrate and fully invest in the school with their time and talent to obtain the most out of their experience here at Calvary Day School.
Our key verse at Calvary Day School is Luke 2:52, which states: “So Jesus grew both in height and in wisdom, and he was loved by God and by all who knew him.” For the Administration and educators of Calvary, this verse is a presentation of the guiding force behind everything we do. This verse encompasses the four components of a truly Christian philosophy of education: physical growth, intellectual growth, spiritual growth, and social/interpersonal growth.
At Calvary Day School, we are called to a higher mission. We infuse faith into our classrooms, clubs, gymnasiums, playing fields, etc.; in essence, into whatever is being done or taught. At Calvary we also pursue excellence in whatever we do. As a result of this internal pursuit of excellence, Calvary was recognized as the first charter member of the National Elementary Honor Society, and our students are accepted each year into some of the finest colleges and universities in the United States, with over half of these students typically receiving academic scholarships.
Since Calvary Day School opened its doors in 1961, it has been blessed with enormous support from those who seek to further the school’s mission of providing an academically challenging education in a uniquely Christian environment. Exceptional teachers, state-of-the-art facilities, and superior athletic venues are all possible because of the generous support of the Calvary family.
Under his leadership, Calvary has experienced unprecedented growth with a 62% increase in enrollment over the last three years. Coach Lee has a desire for excellence in everything he commits to and brings a high level of excitement for the future of Calvary Athletics. Calvary has great expectations and is committed to continuing to provide the most successful boy’s and girl’s athletic programs in the Savannah area. Coach Lee’s vision for growing the impact, reputation, and development of Calvary Athletics programs comes during an exciting time of record growth, financial stability, and unmatched success. Coach Lee looks forward to leading these dynamic programs into the future while producing student-athletes ready to bring the light of Jesus to college campuses and impact the world for His kingdom.
Phillip Lee is well-prepared for the transition to this new area while supporting the process of finding Calvary’s next Director of Admissions, Marketing, & Communications. “I am excited for this opportunity,” said Coach Lee. “I have been a Cavalier all my life, and I know Savannah and love Calvary Day School. I look forward to influencing student-athletes and partnering with our coaches to have a huge impact in the name of Christ and on the scoreboard.” Calvary has experienced Coach Lee “working heartily, as for the Lord and not for men” in all he does. Daniel Jackson and Ken Shaw will remain in their roles as Assistant Athletic Directors supporting the organization in scheduling, game administration, and student-athlete development.
