|Partnership with English School Announced|
Savannah Christian Prep has announced that the school is forming a strategic partnership with the Shorefields Technology College (ages 11-18) of Liverpool, England.
This partnership is being facilitated by The British Council for Education, The Foreign Commonwealth Office of the United Kingdom, and Georgia Governor Nathan Deal's Office with the Georgia Economic Development Office.
Several faculty, administrators, and upper school students met with a host of counterparts from Shorefields along with the First Lady of Georgia, Sandra Deal (visiting Shorefields as part of the Governor's trip to the UK), via video conference on Monday, May 16, 2011. During the virtual meeting, both schools were able to share ideas with each other for collaboration on academic and student leadership-driven projects.
Details and projects for collaboration are in the formative stages and more details are developing.
