New Life Academy meets in Mt. Juliet each Monday from September to May. Classes
are provided for Kindergarten thru 12th grade students. The K-6th grade classes
are structured as a cooperative. The 7th-12th grade classes are fee based and are
instructed by a tutor-teacher.
New Life Academy partners with Christian parents desiring to enhance or extend home
education. Significant parent involvement is vital to student success. We require
families perform the supervision and extension of class instruction, actively attend
a local church, and be registered with an umbrella school under the Tennessee Home
New Life Academy is a non-profit organization. All New Life members are non-paid
volunteers. New Life classes are administered by a committee, members of which
are non-elected and non-paid.
In addition to the structured classes for students, New Life Academy has a support
group for our families. A variety of activities are planned throughout the year
for families to participate in (including a Kick-Off Picnic, Christmas Craft Day,
Spelling Bee, Science Fair, Field Day, and many others). Each family is asked to
assist in the planning of at least 2 activities throughout the year. P.I.E.S. (Physical,
Intellectual, Emotional, Spiritual) support meetings are scheduled monthly for our
moms. These events are a time of refreshing, sharing and fellowship.
