Clarksville Academy has been a tremendous blessing for our entire family. We were searching for a dynamic school environment where our children would be challenged by a professional faculty and valued. All three of our children are thriving in the high quality and compassionate academic environment. Academic excellence, leadership, service and an abundance of extra curricular activities make the Clarksville Academy community the best school for our family.”

“Clarksville Academy has been a personal and academic blessing for our family. In fact, when we moved our children to CA mid-year we immediately felt welcomed and comfortable—as if we were joining a new family. The staff and highly qualified teachers are professionals who obviously love their jobs; which creates an enjoyable learning environment for the students. The advanced technology is a definite bonus to my children’s education and their preparation for the future.”

Upper School Parent Testimonials

“When choosing a kindergarten for my oldest son, we visited all options in Clarksville and landed at CA. That was 12 years ago and it was the best decision for my two son’s educational needs. It is truly a family at CA where the teachers know us and I feel like they have my children’s best interest in mind. CA has been and continues to be the perfect place for us.”

-Mark & Suzanne Norman

 

“Our children have taken full advantage of Clarksville Academy’s extensive academic offerings, and we are now seeing the fruit of their labors as our daughter has been able to add a number of selective top tier universities to her college choices. Potential merit scholarships might cover much of the cost of her CA education. They have thrived in the close-knit culture of the school, where the emphasis is on college preparation with a good variety of sports and other extracurricular opportunities.”

-Lawson & Beth Mabry

 

“I am fortunate to have an association with Clarksville Academy from the day the school opened it’s doors when I was a second grader, through the time my mother taught first grade from 1970-2000 and, now, as my sons progress from 5th grade through high school. When my husband and I made the decision to return to Clarksville after being away for 25 years, there was no question we would enroll our children in Clarksville Academy. Both boys quickly recognized the many benefits of attending CA which they identified as smaller class size, teachers who “really know you” and the opportunity to be a part of sport teams and school leadership.

As parents we are excited to see our sons enjoying a wide array of classes in Math, English, History, Sciences, Languages, Communications and Fine Arts. Participation on sports teams, academic teams and fine art performances keep our lives hectic but our sons are better focused and well-rounded. We are also proud of the community service hours both of our sons serve each year making them strong supporters of the many charities located in the Clarksville area. We hope our sons always remember their hard work and their accomplishments at CA.”
