Welcome to Clayton-Bradley Academy

We are now enrolling students in grades PreK-9 for the upcoming 2014-2015 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 an independent STEM school 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 will see us introduce our new PreK program for students starting at age three in our Lower School. Our Upper School expands with the addition of grades seven through nine.

We are now enrolling students in grades PreK – 9.
