Sumner Academy is a challenging, independent school. Its Sumner County location draws students from Sumner, Wilson, Trousdale, and Davidson counties. We use a blended approach, borrowing the best aspects of many educational models. Beginning in First Grade, teachers specialize in specific subjects. Students benefit from the expertise of more than one teacher and get to move between classrooms several times a day. Our small class sizes and policy of teaching to the top of the class allow for an accelerated pace of learning. Teachers also care deeply about the social and emotional well being of each child and offer guidance to excellence in character. Excellence in academics, character, and athletics are the standard at our school. Come tour with us to see the school for yourself and to determine if Sumner Academy is a fit for your child.
