CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – The halls of Clarksville Academy were busy Monday as students, teachers and staff opened the 2012-2013 school year. Over 570 Pre-K through 12th grade students made their way to class at Clarksville’s oldest and largest private school at 710 North Second Street.
Clarksville Academy is growing and Sally Allen, Director of Marketing and Development said the school has embarked on a building program for a new facility that will have around 15-20 classrooms as well as administrative offices and a bookstore.
The design plans are underway for the new building on the Clarksville Academy campus which is expected to be ready for use by students and teachers in either 2014 or 2015.
Of course the first day of school can be an emotional time for parents as well as students so Clarksville Academy has something special called the Boo-Hoo Breakfast. Allen explained the Boo-Hoo Breakfast is for parents who have students in Pre-K and kindergarten.
The Boo-Hoo Breakfast gives parents somewhere to go after they have dropped off their children. The Parent’s Association at Clarksville Academy provides breakfast for the parents and gives them a chance to talk with other parents and school staff about their youngsters going off to school.
Head of School, Kay Drew talked about the growth of Clarksville Academy. “We have more students than we’ve had in probably about 15 years and we have worked really hard to fit them all in with our new building program coming,” said Drew.
Drew added that she was excited about the fact that out of the school’s intermediate and upper classes, five out of seven classes had over 50 students this year.
