Harrogate, Tennessee, August 3, 2017 —The J. Frank White Academy (JFWA), located on the campus of Lincoln Memorial University (LMU), will hold a Student Preview Day for 4th and 5th graders on Thursday, August 10, 2017. The event is designed to give parents and students a glimpse of what attending a private college preparatory academy would be like.
“This is a great opportunity for families with fourth and fifth graders to experience all the Academy has to offer,” said JFWA Principal Jarryd Boster. “It is easy to see the benefits of attending a college preparatory school in the higher grades, but a strong elementary foundation should not be overlooked.”
Students will attend a full day at the JFWA, including lunch and afterschool enrichment activities. Parents and guardians will be given an opportunity to meet administrators and teachers and review the curriculum during a family session at 5 p.m. The event is free and application fees will be waived for any student who attends.
JFWA is accredited by AdvancED. JFWA students enjoy small class sizes, a dedicated and caring faculty and access to LMU’s library, arena, science labs, dining hall and other facilities. Since its founding in 1989, the Academy has had a 100% college placement rate.
Located in Farr-Chinnock Hall, JFWA classrooms are state-of-the-art and equipped with advanced learning technology. Designated online learning days enable the students to continue lessons at home when weather disrupts travel. A modified block schedule affords students more time for science lab and other complex subjects.
The school offers a tiered tuition structure with inclusive rates that include a buffet style meal plan and tablets as supplemental learning tools for each student. The rates vary by grade level. Each student can also earn up to 30 hours of college credit prior to graduation with no additional fees.
Advance reservations can be obtained by calling Chris Campbell at 423-869-6452.
