Our son loves school

We looked at several schools, but Hancock felt right from the minute we entered. Our son loves school, and we are beyond thrilled at what he is learning and the approach of the whole child the teachers use. Hancock is the perfect fit for us.

Kindness

“Kindness with firmness plus consistency equals security for a child.  Enthusiasm, talent, interest, initiative, and willingness to motivate are contagious and make learning challenging for a child.  With these qualities at Hancock Day School, the children know we care. We have the love and respect of the children; therefore, learning is spontaneous.”

The Hancock Way

“The Hancock Way means working hard and collaborating.  We were taught to push ourselves individually, but to always know that we could do better if we worked together.”

My Time at Hancock

“I found two of my best friends during my time at Hancock.  I also learned to treat people the way that you want to be treated.  Being a jerk never wins anyone over.”

The Hancock Way

“The Hancock Way has guided and nurtured me into the person I am today. It equipped me with the disciplines and values needed to face trials and challenges in the years that followed. It taught me how to persevere through adversity, be a leader with humility, ask for help when needed, express gratitude for the overlooked, and show compassion in everything I do. It is hard to define the Hancock Way because it is seen in actions more than words, through the help of the teachers, staff, parents, and students at HDS. It is something you can only completely understand through experiencing it.”

Teaches Respect

“The Hancock Way teaches respect, responsibility, and character.  I think that’s useful for your everyday life as well as your school life.  Having strong morals helps you create strong friendships and develop relationships with adults-- like your teachers.  And teachers love nothing more than a student with manners.”

One of a kind

We couldn't be happier that our paths led us to Hancock Day School. The learning experience our son is receiving is not only one of a kind, but also nurturing and kind. We are so happy that he wakes up excited to go to school and is picked up excited to share what he learned for the day.

Art Programs

Hancock Day School is committed to providing students with multiple opportunities for visual and performing arts. As part of our comprehensive education programs, students receive weekly lessons in both art and music. Here they may learn more detailed skills and concepts from creating their own ceramic masterpieces to composing their own songs. Field trips are included as part of our curriculum to engage with the community around us such as trips to the Jepson, Telfair, and SCAD Museum for art classes and live musical performances for our music classes. In the afternoon, extracurricular activities are provided for students to further their personal interests including Art Club and Elementary Choir. All of these components help to further enhance the uniqueness of the independent, private school education at Hancock Day School.

Extracurricular Opportunities

Throughout the course of the year, additional afterschool opportunities are offered to our students. These include:

  • Art Club
  • Choir
  • Science Club
  • Snapology
