Finance Class

Coach Edlin’s Intermediate School Finance class is doing a project based off of our students “Dream Job.” While completing the project, students will research what they believe is their dream job. They will need to know details about where they want to live, the salary for the dream job, and what their path will need to be to obtain this job. (education, job experience, etc.) They will create an iMovie or Keynote presentation to present their dream job to the rest of the class.

On Saturday, October 18, 2014, from 8:00-11:30 A.M., Clarksville Academy will administer the PSAT to all 10th and 11th graders who wish to participate. This test is scheduled nationally by the College Board and is given on the same dates and times throughout the country. If you and your child decide to sign up for the test, the deadline to sign up and pay fees is Friday, September 19, 2014.  The fee for the PSAT is $20.00 and should be paid in the guidance office.


Enhanced Schedule

This year CA Upper School will use an Enhanced Schedule. After many hours of research we feel this schedule best benefits our students’ use of class time. Enhanced schedules will be posted in various places around school for easy access. If you have any questions concerning the Enhanced Schedule or the addition of Period Zero please contact Erica Coleman at

Period Zero—Period Zero is a new class period for those students who want to participate in daily fitness class, but are not able to do so during the school day. Period Zero will meet daily from 6:45-7:20 and will be taught by Todd Hood. This will enable students to meet their fitness needs while not sacrificing any academic classes. For more information on Period Zero feel free to contact Todd Hood or Erica Coleman



FCA will meet each Wednesday at 7:15 AM in Mrs. Tecia Hinson’s room, 128. We invite everyone to attend!


Box Tops & Campbell’s Labels

This is a reminder that CA collects Campbell’s labels and Box Tops through our CAA. The money raised from this project funds various school improvement projects. Last year we raised over $2000 through the Box Tops program alone! Please turn yours into your child’s teacher or Ms. Turnage in the front office.
