Proving demographics don’t determine destiny.

Our results put us in the top 1% of all open enrollment public schools in the State of Tennessee. These results are nothing short of revolutionary for the children and families of Nashville. We’ve accomplished this seismic shift in a shorter time than almost anyone thought possible.

Help us take it to the next level.


Digital teacher coaching.

Our scholars have had tremendous gains in math this year in part due to a digital coaching model we’ve pioneered in which our current math teachers are coached via video and curriculum exchange with a master teacher based in New York. We need support to expand this across the curriculum and to future grades.  


Laptops for every child. 


Nashville Prep was named the 2012 “Innovative School of the Year” by the Tennessee Charter School Association in large part because of our pilot program using cutting-edge computer programs to expand student learning in path-breaking ways. It’s time to expand these programs to all scholars by purchasing a laptop for every student at Nashville Prep.



Expanded tutoring services. 

We piloted our Focus Tutoring Block, which is a one-hour, targeted daily tutoring block because high-powered tutoring is one of the most significant drivers of success in urban education.  To sustain this tutoring block, we must invest in an additional staff member to grow this program from one grade to all future grades. 



Expanded science instruction.

Nashville Prep’s 2012 science results were among the highest of any open enrollment public school in the state.  With support, we can expand on this progress—investing in an additional science teacher and more equipment to facilitate a truly college-preparatory laboratory and inquiry-based program.
