From Lipscomb Academy

Since its establishment 127 years ago, Lipscomb Academy has provided a rigorous but joyful learning environment for Nashville students in the intermediate and primary grades. From its very beginnings, Lipscomb Academy benefitted from the college-level professors, equipment and resources available right on its campus. The entire school was founded “to teach the Christian religion as presented in the Bible” and “to prepare Christians for usefulness, in whatever sphere they are called upon to labor.”

Today, that mission means Lipscomb Academy provides all the opportunity of a university, with the feel of a family. Our mission is greater than shaping only the minds of your children; we guide children to discover their gifts and passions to develop as a whole person and to become an adult who can positively influence the Nashville and greater global community.
