SAVANNAH, GA. – Nov. 2, 2021 – Savannah Classical Academy (SCA) will honor our nation’s veterans and active-duty military members with its annual Veteran’s Day program at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 10 at the school, 705 E Anderson Street. Every year SCA pays a special tribute with this program to veterans bringing awareness to the valor, sacrifice and service of military members and their families. 

Students in grades K-12 will produce poems, essays, and art for the Veteran’s Day program contest that will center on the theme, “Honor Those Who Served: The Centennial Commemoration of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.”

The program will feature student speakers, special presentations, a “missing man” ceremony, and an opportunity for students to honor our nations local veterans. The SCA color guard will present and retire the colors which are vital to every Veteran’s Day program. Students will observe military procedures to gain a deeper respect for the American flag and all that it represents. SCA’s music and strings program along with guest performers will provide musical selections during the program which will invoke a spirit of patriotism and teach students the importance of patriotic music and its place in American culture.

“Providing our students with this opportunity to learn why patriotism is such a valued characteristic as they become responsible citizens is a teaching opportunity that we hold to the upmost importance. We want to use this Veteran’s Day program as a way to thank each and every one of our active military members and retired veterans and their families,” said SCA CEO Barry Lollis.

It is the philosophy of Savannah Classical Academy that all students benefit from a rigorous, content-rich, educational program that develops academic potential and personal character. The school provides an environment that fosters academic excellence through the habits of thoroughness, the willingness to work, and the perseverance to complete difficult tasks. Through a defined traditional, Classical-Liberal curriculum, students are prepared to become active, responsible members of their community.
