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 in the next 3-5 years.  We need your help do this!  Contact Sally Allen at to find out what you can do to help us reach our goal.
