Founded in 1989, the J. Frank White Academy (JFWA) is a college preparatory school
located on the campus of Lincoln Memorial University in Harrogate, Tennessee. Fully
accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), the J. Frank
White Academy serves average and above average ability students in grades five through
twelve who desire a college preparatory education. Successful applicants normally
have at least a 2.0 GPA at the school from which they are transferring. The Academy
does not offer special education programs and does not accept students who have a
history of chronic disciplinary problems.
JFWA offers a part-time program for students who are currently in a registered home school program. JFWA offers courses in fine arts such as Visual Arts, Spanish and Strings. Part-time students may be eligible to take any Academy class. Students wishing to participate in the part-time day school program must complete a student application and must meet all admissions requirements for full-time Academy students. Copies of the most current standardized test scores and current immunization record or waiver must be submitted with the application. Please call for more information on this unique program.
The Academy is located atop a hill on the beautiful, 1,000 acre LMU campus which enjoys spectacular panoramic views of the Appalachian Mountains. Whether it is because of the close-knit family atmosphere and extra attention given to each student or the excellent academic opportunities, parents choose to give their children the advantage of a private school education for many reasons.
