Upper Academy

Our upper academy consists of 9th-12th grade students who meet on campus for classroom instruction on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. High School students schedules may vary, but first period begins at 8:30 and sixth period ends at 3:20 with a thirty minute lunch break in the middle of the day.  Lesson plans provided by our teachers are completed at home on Tuesdays and Fridays by the student.  In high school the role of the parent transitions from the teaching parent to more of a support role.

Our Current Families page has current copies of our Policy Manual as well as Curriculum lists.  If you have other questions about our school you can call our main office at (865) 212-5575. If you would like to schedule a tour of one of our campuses please contact our Public Relations Director, Amy Fellhoelter, at (865) 201-1192 or email her at We look forward to hearing from you!
