King's Academy

Nashville, Tenn.

King’s Academy is a Pre-K-8th grade independent Christian school providing a classically inspired education to a racially and socioeconomically balanced student body in Nashville, Tennessee. Based on core values of diversity, humility and unity, King’s Academy’s pedagogy moves students through two of the three main stages of classical learning called the trivium – the Grammar (the “what”- data, knowledge and the basic vocabulary of each discipline), and the Logic (the “why”- encouraging critical thinking and understanding of each discipline). King’s Academy has an enrichment program built into the school day to maximize opportunities for children to develop personal expression and interpersonal connection through the arts, athletics, foreign language, biblical discipleship and community service. Launched in fall 2021. King’s Academy’s Board Chair, Palmer Williams, participated in The Drexel Fund’s Founders Program in 2020-21.
