BGA is a regional school with students coming from seven counties. The majority of BGA students reside in Williamson County. A number of students also reside in Maury and Davidson Counties. Franklin, Tennessee and the surrounding area is one of the fastest-growing and most popular small towns for exceptional quality of life. This makes our location a wonderful choice for families who love the southern way of life with all the perks of a progressive city.
A full array of musical, visual and theatrical arts programs are provided to BGA students, including acting, art, band, choir, painting, photography, pottery, sculpture, self-portrait and speech. Several AP and Honors classes are also offered.
Transportation is available at an additional cost via bus service from the Maury and Davidson County areas. The service from Maury County includes a stop in Spring Hill. Service from Davidson County originates in Green Hills and includes a stop in Brentwood.
For Lower and Middle School students, Extended Care is available after school for families who need help bridging the gap between dismissal and pick up. Additionally, Lower School students may participate in the Explore Program during the year as an after-school alternative which adds to the student's academic enrichment. Visit the Lower School Extended Care and Explore Program page for additional information.
Diversity and inclusion are important initiatives at BGA. Racial, social, religious and economic diversity are all important. Currently, 9% of BGA students are students of color and of different faith traditions. Seventeen percent of BGA students receive some sort of financial aid. Our inclusion committee sponsors ongoing events throughout the school year (during and after school) to honor and celebrate inclusion in our educational community. Visit the Diversity page for more information about BGA's commitment to diversity.
