We believe learning should go beyond the walls of the classroom.
Tennessee Nature Academy believes that effective learning takes place when students solve authentic problems through mastering and applying disciplinary knowledge and skills. Project-based learning helps students grow confident in their abilities to think critically, design creatively, and work collaboratively. Our students approach new academic challenges with a sense of adventure. Learning at Tennessee Nature Academy takes place within and beyond traditional classroom spaces, as students build and apply literacy and mathematics skills in real-world settings. Our emphasis on nature-based play and learning serves the dual purpose of encouraging healthy lifestyles while giving students the opportunity to be curious and explore.
