From Guidance–Dear Clarksville Academy Junior Parents,
Each year we have an informational meeting regarding college planning, college applications, scholarships, and much more for all of our juniors and/or their parents.  We would like to invite you to attend this meeting on Tuesday, March 3, 2015, at 5:00 p.m.  The meeting will be held in Clarksville Academy’s Auxiliary gym.  We will have a representative from Austin Peay State University here to discuss Dual Enrollment between 5:00 p.m. and 5:30. The college planning presentation will immediately follow that presentation.

I strongly encourage all parents and students to attend, if possible.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email our Denise Walker at



We are currently undergoing re-enrollment here at CA. Families should submit their re-enrollment contracts before March 6. All returning families have their space secured for the 2015-2016 school year until March 6. After this date we will begin open enrollment for any student in our community. If you have questions regarding re-enrollment please see the Business Office.



FCA will meet each Wednesday at 7:15 AM in Coach Chuck Holt’s room. 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.
