Welcome to Clayton-Bradley Academy

We are now enrolling students in grades PreK-10 for the 2015-2016 academic school year. We would love to schedule a campus visit for you and your family. Come see how we innovate learning for the 21st century!

Clayton-Bradley Academy is a new, independent school located in Blount County, convenient to Knoxville and the surrounding areas. Our small, year-round school offers students a nurturing place to excel through being-there experiences, creative project-based learning, and real-world applications within the context of a rigorous curriculum.

Our first year began with our K-6 academy and initial plans to add one grade per year, culminating in a full K-12 STEM school by 2019. However, because of the demand for our unique and innovative educational design, we are growing beyond those initial expectations.

Our second year opened with the introduction of our new PreK program for students starting at age three in our Lower School and our Upper School expansion of grades seven through nine.

With the start of the 2015 school year, we have added an additional Preschool class, an additional 6th grade classroom and the expansion of our new, temporary high school campus.  Students are enjoying the new student-designed playground which opened in July.  Construction continues on a new parking lot, added buildings to the upper school campus, an outdoor classroom, then an additional 10,000 sq.ft. building will be constructed during this school year.  We are now enrolling students in grades PreK – 10th.
