Tennessee Nature Academy believes that the best practices are sustainable practices. We recognize the need for sustainability to exist in our relationships with others and with the environment. TNA uses systems that help students learn to care for their mental and physical well-being and support our community’s culture using restorative, relationship-based ethics and practices. Our emphasis on nature taps into the well-researched, curative effect of spending time learning, playing, and simply being outdoors.
Another way we do this is through our emphasis of positive psychology through our use of The Positivity Project.
