We have been thrilled with the education faculty, coaches, the house system and classical education model. Our son has thrived in this Christian based environment, and I look forward to sending his siblings there. We absolutely recommend The Habersham School!

We love The Habersham School! Our children are preschool age and they are learning Bible stories, math, listening to great composers, being exposed to great works of art, and most importantly having their character shaped by God-fearing men and women. Truly the best education happens when teachers teach to the person versus the product. We are so thankful our family is a part of this unique school!

What a great experience over the last 6+ years!!! Where to start... First, the teachers and leadership- kind, loving, compassionate, dedicated, and motivated. They are all focused on the same end state: a faith first, God driven manifestation of knowledge, values, and attitudes. The curriculum- challenging yet obtainable: students are aware of what is expected and given just the right amount of "hands on attention" without interfering with self awareness and self motivation. Last but not least are the students themselves: what a great bunch of kids. Loving, caring, and attentive. The house system fosters a sense of ownership and pride. Student leaders organize and facilitate many of the school events and they incorporate the entirety of the student body in to the end results. We could go on and on. Truly blessed to have our child enrolled at The Habersham School.

This school has been a blessing to our family. The Classical Curriculum is rigorous and inspires my sophomore to think outside of the box. The students are taught to think critically and to articulate their thoughts in meaningful dialogues. I am constantly amazed at the things they are discussing in the high school setting. Moreover, my daughter has had opportunities to play violin, sing in a choir, perform on stage and to play tennis, all while being guided by teachers and coaches who challenge her to do her best and to be herself!

I highly recommend this school for parents that seek a good Christian based education. There is no stress of benchmark scores giving the child the comfort to learn, explore and grow as an individual. The entire staff embraces your child and the parents' desire to help their children to discover their talents and flourish on that while gaining an excellent education. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

This is an excellent school that teaches students how to observe, think and formulate thoughts and then how to communicate those observations and thoughts to the world around them. The academics are rigorous but fair and are taught by faculty who care about their students and are committed to Christ. The athletics are competitive and led by coaches who strive for excellence and believe in developing body, mind and soul. I highly recommend this school!

We love The Habersham School! The teachers treat students with dignity and understanding in moments of celebration and moments of correction. The House System makes everyone PK 3-12th grade feel like a real family. The teachers and coaches challenge each student in ways that bring out their God-given skills and talents while creating meaningful relational experiences where students can grow both individually and together.

This school is very special. You must spend the day on campus to understand why. The classical education is what is missing in our schools today. I highly recommend this it and they have a campus in Rincon and downtown Savannah.

Every private school parent is encouraged to help the school in whatever way he can. Here are some things you can do to make a contribution to your school.
It seems to be highly likely that the COVID-19 virus will spread to the United States. We look at step schools and parents can take to protect themselves from this highly contagious virus.
