Engage, Embrace, Empower

Clarksville Academy is blogging!  Our new blog launched the week of Thanksgiving and will post twice weekly. The hope of this blog is to offer insights for parents.  We will discuss a variety of topics from technology, to parenting ideas, ways to prepare your child for testing, long breaks, etc.  We hope you will choose to subscribe and to encourage your friends to do so as well. These blogs will not be CA centered, but will offer insights for any parent at any school.  Subscribe at: https://clarksvilleacademy.com/category/engage-embrace-empower/



Giving is ongoing at CA.  Last week we hosted our 30th Annual Steak Dinner, which will benefit our operating fund.  This annual event is much needed to offset the cost of tuition.  We encourage you to reach out with questions regarding giving or with ideas on how you can support Clarksville Academy in our giving efforts. Please contact Sally Allen at sallen@clarksvilleacademy.com to find out more about how you can help.
