Our mission is to educate every child for academic success and personal excellence in high school, college, and life.

We are a free, public elementary school located in East Nashville. Nashville Classical was the only school unanimously approved by the Board of Education in May 2012 and opened its doors on July 31, 2013.  We educate scholars through a classical curriculum, built on the study of great books, foreign language, and music. We educate scholars within an achievement-oriented culture, built upon core values, common language, and structured joy. We are Nashville Classical Charter School.
