About Our School 

Madison Academy, established in 1904 under the visionary inspiration of Ellen White, is a co-educational, day high-school located approximately ten miles northeast of Nashville, Tennessee on a bend of the Cumberland River.  The academy is owned and operated by the Kentucky-Tennessee Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, and primarily serves students of Seventh-day Adventist backgrounds and families from the Nashville community. The three entities of the academy include our educational program, our Linen Service industry and nearly 60 units of rental properties.  About 40 full and part-time workers make up our staff.  Madison Academy is accredited by the Adventist Accrediting Association, Middle States Accrediting Association, National Council for Private Schools, and the State of Tennessee. It is a member of the Association of Seventh-day Adventist Secondary Schools.
