Box Tops

CA has always used the box tops label program to earn extra money for our school. We have been so lucky in the past for all your support for the program. Over the years we have earned thousands of dollars for our school. This year it is even easier! Simply download the Box Tops for Education app from the app store, pick Clarksville Academy as your school and start scanning your receipts! It’s as easy as that! So start scanning!


Did you know that CA is a Publix Partner? It’s easy to help us raise money for our school by logging your shopping. Visit publix.com/partners and choose Clarksville Academy. Then enter your phone number each time you check out. It’s that easy!


If you have pictures you’d like considered for possible inclusion in the 19-20 yearbook, download the Replay It app and send photos our way. Set up is simple. You can always email your photos to any member of the yearbook staff, but the app saves quite a few steps and makes our staff more efficient.

As always, every student receives a yearbook as part of their tuition and fees. This year, students are able to get personalization on their yearbook cover for a small fee. You can order this for your student(s) at Jostens.com. From their website, search for our school and select yearbook. You should be able to order and pay for personalization there. If you have any questions, please feel free to email ldrake@clarksvilleacademy.com

We are so thankful for ALL our supporters! As many of you know, we purchased the white house on the corner of Anderson Drive closest to the Fine Arts Building. This addition to our campus now houses both the Admissions & Business Offices. Our maintenance staff put a lot of hard work into making this house a new home for these offices. We want to give a HUGE thank you to Christina Clark for her help securing donations to the house. Thank you to Drs. Dave & Jennie Beth Johnston for donating the new awning, Eric & Christie Burger for purchasing the new sink and toilet for the downstairs bath, to Tim Sawyer for donating tiles for that same bathroom and for Heritage Tile for not only providing the tile for the kitchen and fireplace, but for covering the cost of labor and supplies for laying all tile in the house. We also want to thank the Byard and Mabry families for their donations to the Library for the new glass windows and doors. We could not do it without all their help! Please contact Sally Allen at sallen@clarksvilleacademy.com to find out more about how you can help.
