Here at the J. Frank White Academy we keep our students’ needs at the center of our decision making and have done so since our founding in 1989. J. Frank White offers a college preparatory education from grades 4-12 to students who perform at an average or above average level academically. Being located on the 1,000 acre campus of Lincoln Memorial University offers our students many opportunities to use university facilities not only for academics but for athletics and extra-curricular activities as well. In addition to using the facilities of our campus, students at J. Frank White have opportunities on many occasions to interact with campus faculty and staff members. One such opportunity is made available to upperclassmen in the form of taking LMU classes for dual credit.
Allowing your child to become a part of our academy will offer them a myriad of opportunities and experiences that cannot be matched anywhere else in our area. We have a range of educational opportunities including World School, while still paying attention to the social needs of our students by hosting dances and other events. Students at J. Frank White also have the option to participate in athletics and extra-curricular activates such as basketball, baseball, soccer, tennis, golf, and cheerleading. The ability of our students to participate in these programs while maintaining our high academic standard is a true testament to our caring and hard working faculty and staff. Often we go above and beyond normal expectations in order to provide the best possible educational experience for our students.
In addition to our outstanding academic program, consistent 100% college placement rate, and our extra-curricular activities, we strive to provide a caring, family atmosphere for our students. While we place a great deal of importance on the academic success of our students, we understand their individual needs and do our best to ensure their growth in all areas in order to give them the life skills they need to be a successful part of our society.
We appreciate your interest in our school. If you have any questions feel free to call us or stop by. It’s an exciting time for the J. Frank White Academy as we are growing and offering more opportunities for our students every year. It is my hope that you will become a part of our family and share in our excitement, tradition, and undoubted success. We look forward to hearing from you!
