In early 2013, a small group of educators and parents came together to brainstorm the idea of a new school with a unique and powerful model for educating children. Included in the group were Pat Bradley-the current Executive Director of Clayton-Bradley Academy, Linda Jordan - a leading expert in Highly Effective Teaching, and Kevin Clayton - CEO of Clayton Homes.
While the idea for the school was born from a small group, we fully recognize that we cannot take on this challenge alone. When CBA opened its doors, there were 77 students enrolled in grades K-6 with the intention to grow one grade level per year to 580 K-12 students at full capacity. However, the desire to be a part of the CBA community has led to growth far beyond what could have been projected.
