Ashley Academy was founded in 1979 to provide a challenging educational program to bright and gifted children. For forty years, Ashley Academy has maintained exemplary standards in the preschool through eighth grade levels. Organized as an independent, co-educational, private school, Ashley Academy promotes learning in an atmosphere that nurtures character, responsibility, and self-worth.
The mission of Ashley Academy is to provide children with unique and challenging learning opportunities in a nurturing, safe, and culturally diverse environment. We develop scholars, innovators, and leaders.
Ashley Academy’s school year consists of four, forty-five day quarters, approximately nine weeks each. School day hours for preschool classes are offered with both full-time (8:00am to 3:30pm) or part-time (8:00am to 12:30pm) enrollment options. Kindergarten through eighth grade hours are 8:00am to 3:30 pm. Students may arrive at the school starting at 7:30 a.m. In order to accommodate families who need child care services before and after the academic day, Ashley Academy offers an extended care program from 7:00am to 7:30am and 3:45pm to 5:30pm.
The teacher-student ratio at Ashley Academy averages 1:10, with an enrollment capacity of 162. The faculty is composed of thirty full- and part-time dedicated professional educators, many of whom have earned graduate degrees. The school also meets all state academic and safety requirements, and is annually approved by the Tennessee State Department of Education.
The Headmaster oversees all matters of the school and faculty. A Board of Directors governs the school and is responsible for selecting the Headmaster. Board members constitute a range of individuals within the community and school with representation from academic, financial, legal and medical entities as well as parents of Ashley Academy students and alumni.
