August 5, 2015Dear CA Families,
Summer 2015 has been filled with summer camps, new family visits, campus updates, and endless preparations for the 2015-2016 academic year. We are happy to welcome all of our Cougars next week and look forward to another successful school year!I want to take a moment and reflect on our school and students’ accomplishments. Each year, our competitive student body and faculty/staff surpasses previous achievements, sets new goals, and new campus highlights are achieved. In 2015, our graduating class of only 37 reached $4.7 million in scholarship dollars. This is remarkable! Our students also receive 100% college acceptance. With the academic rigor and the related experiences our students are receiving, the possibilities are endless.
Listed below are among the many accomplishments CA has recently achieved:
- National Merit Qualifier
- Apple Distinguished Educator Selection
- Over 12,000 Hours of Community Service
- CBL Project Success – Outdoor Fitness Additions in the local community and B-Cycle Project
- Athletic Teams State Recognition
- Collegiate Team Athletic Signings
- Clarksville Academy goes Green – Green Certification
- Annual Giving Participation Success
- New Academic Building located adjacent to Cumberland Terrace and facing North Second StreetThank you for being strong supporters for our school and for teaming with Clarksville Academy in guiding your children through their educational journey. It is a joy to work with you all and experience firsthand the excitement for learning. It is going to be a great year!I look forward to seeing you at orientations on August 11th!

PowerSchool Updates:Directory Information: The 2015-2016 School Directory will be compiled from PowerSchool. Please view your child’s information in PowerSchool and make any updates or corrections, if needed, no later than Thursday, August 13th. You may find the link to PowerSchool by visiting www.
clarksvilleacademy.com. PowerSchool will be located under the Quick Links section.

PowerSchool Emergency Form Update: PowerSchool is the CA student database system. This system stores all emergency contact information for each student. Every student will need an updated Emergency form for the 2015-16 school year. You may access this form by selecting the Demographic/Emergency tab. Make sure to digitally sign the parent release section at the bottom of that page. Tennessee State Law states that students should have all emergency contact information submitted by the first day of school. If you child does not have this on file by the first day of school, you will be notified and asked to come in for completion. If you need any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact the front office at 931-647-6311. If your child is a first year cougar and you have not received a PowerSchool Login and Password, please contact the front office. We can provide you with this information.
If you need further assistance, please contact the front office at 931-647-6311. We will be glad to help.
