Independent schools, such as Hancock Day School in Savannah, are private, pre-collegiate learning institutions that have no affiliation, financially or otherwise, with a church or faith. These schools are nonprofit and function independently, funded solely through tuition, charitable contributions, and endowment income.

Independent schools are governed by boards of trustees and are publicly accountable to parents, communities, and the agencies that accredit them. Each independent school maintains a unique mission to uphold high standards of educational quality.

Whether progressive or traditional in structure, centuries old or modern-day establishments, independent schools are known and beloved for the following attributes:

  • Low student-to-faculty ratio for more personalized education and attention
  • An environment of positivity and support from faculty, staff, and fellow students
  • Rapid student progress
  • A high level of participation in extracurricular activities
  • The promotion of self-discipline, responsibility, and self-motivation
  • Instilling the importance of personal values
  • A fervent commitment by teachers to uphold the school's vision
  • Responsiveness to students and their parents from faculty and staff
  • Encouragement of parental participation
