Savannah Legacy Academy Campus Life


This is a very exciting time for our school, as well as a wonderful opportunity for your students to compete against each other and various schools in our region. We are proud to take part in SLA’s first athletic venture and we look forward to having a prosperous athletic season! The potential leagues are GISA (Georgia Independent School Association) and SPAL (Savannah Parochial League) of the City of Savannah. It is our goal to make this athletic experience meaningful, educational, inspirational, and fun for all of our wonderful student athletes. As a means to parallel our dedication to your students, we as a school would also like to help cement those relationships with each parent as well. Interscholastic athletics serve a critical educational function that complements the traditional classroom. Athletics are a “real life” setting for the practice of competition, cooperation, and adaptability: the principles upon which our society is based. In athletics, one must compete against an opponent, compete against oneself in terms of constantly striving to improve, work effectively with teammates and coaches, and perform in a continuously changing environment, as no two contests are ever the same. Success is facilitated by being prepared, maintaining a positive attitude, being dedicated to a common cause, and establishing high standards of sportsmanship. In addition, each season every team works together on a community service initiative, extending those lessons of sportsmanship and team building and using them to benefit others. Also, all athletic and fitness programs here are Christ-centered and incorporate biblical principles. We feel participation in physical activity is a great way to encourage spiritual growth in our students! We recognize each athlete as a unique individual and we will use athletics as a means to help our student-athletes identify God’s purpose for their lives. On the field of competition as well as in life we want every athlete to value that we never give up and never give in as we exhibit Christ, Character, and Class in all we do!

Student vs. Staff Games

Every year, students and staff square off against one another in games of flag football, volleyball, basketball, and dodge-ball. It is a tremendous way for our students and staff to bond with one another, and blow off a little steam in the process!

Service Learning & Community Service

The purpose of the Savannah Legacy community service program is to expose students to the various areas of need in our society and encourage them to give their time and talents sacrificially to meet those needs. However, to define our community service program as simply a program would paint an incomplete picture of the school’s mission. The community service activities provide an opportunity for students, families, and staff to share themselves and their resources with those in need. Our projects range from local to global and include gifts of time, talent, labor, and spirit. We do not want our students to complete a certain number of obligatory hours; instead, we want our students to model their lives after the example of Christ Everyone at Savannah Legacy, students and faculty, take part in community service throughout the year. As a result, the school has special partnerships with many area service organizations. These organizations include nursing homes, food banks, soup kitchens, nursery schools, day care centers, community farms, and transitional homes. They look forward to our visits and appreciate what the SLA community contributes.

Visual & Performing Arts

We strive to educate “the whole child,” and exposure to opportunities in the arts is central to that mandate. Students explore the visual and performing arts during the school day and as extracurricular activities.

Student Organizations

Student Council Student council provides students in grades 4-8 an opportunity to participate in and practice leadership and responsible decision making. Representatives are nominated by their peers to be on student council. Members of student council are role models and exhibit the highest standards of conduct and character. Student council works together to discuss a variety of issues and make recommendations to the Student Council Advisor and the Principal. Meetings are held twice a month before school with each representative taking turns leading the meeting and recording minutes. Each classroom has a student council suggestions notebook which representatives bring to every meeting.
