Lower School Christmas Program

A BIG thank you to all who helped to make our Lower School program a success!  Mrs. Angelia Thomas out did herself this year with the “In The Spirit” theme and many said it was the best yet!  We had over 700 views of the program during our LIVE feed.  This was wonderful!  Thank you to Mr. Neitzke and his classes for their wonderful backdrop, Mrs. Goostree for all her hard work and planning, Mr. John Mark Cox & Mary’s Music for his help with sound, all our musicians, and students who participated and our wonderful teachers for their help preparing for the event.  A special thank you to the parents who helped with costuming as well!


FCA Thanks You

Upper School FCA would like to thank everyone who participated in our dress down day. The money raised was enough to fulfill all of our Christmas projects! We would also like to thank lower school for decorating all the Christmas cards for the nursing homes. They were beautiful! This year we were able to take fruit boxes and cards to four of our local nursing homes. Four Angel Tree Families received Holiday meals. An FCA deployed father received a Christmas box.  Money was donated for two cleft surgeries through the Smile Train. Donation of a BioSand Water Filter, chickens, rabbits, Bibles, and Gospel Tracks were sent to Gospel For Asia. Donations were also given to our missionaries Jeff and Mary Beth Meyers. We were also able to make donations to Manna Café and St Jude. Thank you for your support and Happy New Year!

Intermediate and Upper School FCA will resume Wednesday morning meeting on January 14, 2015.

Expanding the Experience

Expanding the Experience—Clarksville Academy is still very excited about our expansion plans!  As you can see a new expansion is slated to open January 2015 and is adjacent to the main building.  This expansion is really booming on the north end of our campus and we are thrilled with the process!  In this expanded part of the main building we have the opportunity for a few more classrooms to be named.  We have had a few families reserve naming rights on some of the classrooms, but still have a couple left. If you are interested in honoring or memorializing someone in this way, please contact Sally Allen at or 647-6311.  These won’t last long.

Our hope is to have the new building shown below completed by 2020.  We need your help do this!  Contact Sally Allen at to find out what you can do to help us reach our goal.

Box Tops & Campbell’s Labels
