From Randy Tucker, Interim Head of School

BGA has been serving the Franklin and greater Middle Tennessee community for almost 125 years. Each division of BGA has its own culture, yet each contributes to the mission of preparing students to grow intellectually, morally, creatively, and physically. Underlying this mission's goals are a strong commitment to tradition and a constant desire for innovation and appropriate change. BGA offers strong academics, high expectations founded on an Honor Code that straddles all three divisions, growing arts programs, and a great history of athletic competition and physical education.  

The ability to think critically and creatively fosters success in life. To this end, Battle Ground Academy has established a tradition of academic challenge that ensures academic excellence. The tradition begins with a comprehensive curriculum taught by highly-qualified faculty in a supportive environment. From formative kindergarten activities to rigorous college preparatory courses, students at BGA receive the individualized attention that allows them to thrive both in school and life.
