Join the movement to reimagine education.

Knowledge Academies is a 2017 National Award Winner to Reimagine Education in partnership with the National Writing Project, MacArthur Foundation, and John Legend’s Show Me Campaign!

KA educators are innovators!

KA’s Writing to Reimagine campaign will serve as a national model for how the local stories of communities (students, staff, and families) can empower others towards positive changemaking. Empower the next generation of youth, leaders, and families through passion, precision, humility, and service.

KA currently operate two middle schools and one high school, and are authorized to open additional schools, over the next five years, in Tennessee.

Our work is focused on preparing students to make the best academic and social choices, leading to a successful life.

As a team, we are committed to leveraging and listening to the voice of our students and families, in support of developing Unity through Community.

We believe we are engaged in some of the most important public service and outreach of our generation, and are committed to the collaboration necessary to meet this challenge.

Our team is committed to the service of students and families who often reside near poverty, and in many cases are English language learners.

Our team is the first middle or high school in Tennessee to be recognized, nationally, as an Ashoka Changemaker school, where everyone has the opportunity to build positive momentum and share their talents or passion for the public good!
