J. Frank White Academy (JFWA), located on the campus of Lincoln Memorial University (LMU), will hold a Student Preview Day on Feb. 18. The event is designed to give area parents and students a glimpse of what attending a private college preparatory academy would be like.
“This is a great opportunity for families to take a closer look at their children’s education,” said JFWA Principal Jarryd Boster. “If their students are not thriving in their current setting, then the personal attention, small class sizes and family atmosphere available at the J. Frank White Academy may be just what their students’ need.”
The morning will kick off at 8:15 a.m. with an information session followed by class preview and lunch for the prospective students. Parents and guardians will be given an opportunity to meet administrators and teachers and review the curriculum. At least one parent or guardian must be in attendance, and application fees will be waived for all attendees.
JFWA is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. JFWA students enjoy small class sizes, a dedicated and caring faculty and access to LMU’s library, arena, science labs, dining hall and other facilities. Since its founding in 1989, the Academy has had a 100 percent college placement rate.
The school offers a tiered tuition structure with inclusive rates that include a buffet style meal plan and iPads as a supplemental learning tool for each student. The rates vary by grade level. Upon entry into high school, the rates are frozen at one level for all four years. Each student can also earn up to 30 hours of college credit prior to graduation with no additional fees.
Advance reservations can be obtained by calling Chris Campbell at 423-869-6452.
