Nashville Classical Charter School
Nashville Classical Charter School is in its fourth year, after opening with 96 kindergarten scholars in August 2013. For the 2016-2017 school year, we have over 300 students in K-3rd grade. Through a classical curriculum and within an achievement-oriented culture, we educate every student for academic success and personal excellence in high school, college and life.
We were the only charter school unanimously approved by the Metropolitan Board of Education and received the city's first K-8 charter. Located at 1310 Ordway Place, Nashville Classical is in the heart of East Nashville, home to some of the city's most dynamic businesses, diverse neighborhoods and high-need schools.
Nashville Classical began with the simple, unyielding belief that our children deserve better. Trained in the practices of the country's most successful urban schools by nationally recognized non-profit Building Excellent Schools, our leadership has designed a free, public, college- prep school unlike any in Tennessee. Our classical scholars study timeless literature, solve complex problems, and develop enduring character as they build the foundation for success and excellence in high school, college and life.
