SAVANNAH, GA. – Nov. 10, 2022 – Today, Savannah Classical Academy (SCA) honored our nation’s veterans and active-duty military members with its annual Veteran’s Day program at the school, located on 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.
