SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV)- Georgia’s Lieutenant Governor Geoff Duncan was in the Hostess City this morning to speak to the students at Savannah Classical Academy.
Students kicked off the SCA Honors and Lower school Bridging Ceremony with a school song. Shortly after Lt., Governor Duncan took the stage to give the opening remarks.
He talked about the importance of community involvement in the education of young children. SCA was just one stop on Duncan’s tour. He’s made it a priority to speak at events like this one all across the state.
Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan visited Savannah Classical Academy Friday, a charter school within the Savannah-Chatham County Public School System, to speak to elementary students and their parents at an end-of-year ceremony, where he encouraged them to keep working hard.
The school, which has made a comeback this year after the state placed it on probation in July 2017 and issued an enrollment moratorium last year after it missed goals for academics and other organizational performance, can provide a lesson for other schools facing challenging situations throughout the state, Duncan said. The state lifted the school’s enrollment ban just before school opened in August, after its students’ performance on 2018 Georgia Milestones Assessment System improved dramatically.
Savannah Classical Academy is slated to recognize Fine Arts Week 2019 throughout the school week beginning Monday, May 6, with three exciting events. All events are free and open to SCA families and supporters.
The first event, a Piano Keyboard Recital, will be presented at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 7 at the school, 705 E. Anderson Street.

Anderson Street.
