Clayton-Bradley Academy announces the opening of our new middle school. We are now enrolling students in grades K-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!


Welcome to Clayton-Bradley

Clayton-Bradley Academy is an independent STEM school in Blount County, convenient to Knoxville and the surrounding areas. The 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 need for our unique and innovative educational design, we are growing beyond those initial expectations. Our second year will see us opening our middle school with the addition of grades seven and eight.

For the 2014-2015 academic year, the academy is now enrolling students in grades K-8.
