Welcome to BGA

Thank you for considering Battle Ground Academy. We have been a community of learners in the heart of Franklin, Tenn., for over 125 years, and our graduates have made their mark around the country and the world. Throughout our history, we have been privileged to prepare women and men for college and beyond.

At both our Lower School (grades K – 4) and Glen Echo campus (grades 5 – 12) we provide a focused atmosphere that encourages students in every aspect of their education: intellectual, physical, creative and moral. Our academic program is challenging and yet focused on the needs of individual learners, traditional and yet responsive to current best practices.

We know BGA can change lives because we see the fruits of that growth every day. Character, Scholarship and Excellence are not merely words on our seal; they are woven into the fabric of the BGA culture, from competitive athletics to a national caliber debate program, from the honor council to the arts program. This environment shapes the kind of person a student will be for his or her lifetime. Lasting friendships, a caring faculty, and a proud heritage all converge and enrich our students’ lives in significant ways. Together they contribute to and define the BGA experience.

Our mission is to ignite and nuture student curiousity, intellect, and character.  We want to  establish an environment that fosters the highest standards for both students and faculty. We have an unwavering faith in BGA’s future and are confident that exciting days are ahead.

Nothing is more important than your child’s future. Please know we do not take for granted the different educational options open to you and your child. We are privileged to have you consider BGA. Please let us know how we can assist you.

Warmest regards,

Robin Goertz
Director of Admissions
