The Madison Advantage


After noticing the amount of trash lining Larkin Springs road as they travel to and from school, the Junior Class knew they had a choice… Complain or Act. So, they strapped on orange vests. Armed with trash grabbers and bags, they took on the neighborhood. Devoted Servants. That was their choice. That is the Madison Advantage.

Students to serve in Puerto Rico during Spring Break

We are excited about our Spring Break Mission Trip this year!  We have looked at a number of locations and feel led to go to Puerto Rico to assist in repairs and the continued recovery from last year’s hurricane.  We will be doing repair work at a local Adventist school and at numerous homes in the community.  We will be working out of a town called Las Piedras which is southeast of San Juan.  We will be staying at a local Adventist church and have hired a couple of the church members to cook authentic Puerto Rico cuisine while we are there.  The dates will be February 27-March 8, 2019.  We can take up to 40 participants on this trip, so first come first served sign-ups.  The cost will be $1100.  $100 down payment will reserve your spot on the list (please make checks out to Madison Academy).  Since Puerto Rico is a U.S. territory, no passport is required. If you have any questions, please reach out to me.

The Wheels on the bus go round and round

Thanks to a gift from donors last year we were able to purchase and wrap two 12-passenger vans. These vans have taken our students all over… from drama outings to sports tournaments, from volunteering at the 403 Center to field trips to the Chamber of Commerce. These vans have been well used and truly loved. Private support is what makes it possible for us to not only transport our students around Middle TN, but also promote our school at the same time. If you want to help support any projects, contact our Director of Development, Taleah Valles-Peters.

Serious About Safety

We are saddened by the events in Florida and too many other places where violence is entering schools. We also want you to know several weeks ago, our principal toured the campus with a representative from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations to discuss our risk, our current practices and the necessary steps to take in the future. We will consider both our intruder alert procedures and facility adjustments where needed.  We are awaiting complete report from TBI and are happy to share it with any parents who are interested in helping guide decisions for keeping our students safe.
