Opening doors to students in 2016, the Episcopal School of Nashville’s vision is to shape students who are intellectually, spiritually, and responsibly engaged with the place, community, and world they call home. The school is located in the historic Ross Building in the heart of East Nashville. Located across the Cumberland River from downtown Nashville, East Nashville is a culturally diverse, eclectic area, full of historic homes, a vibrant restaurant scene, and a pedestrian and bike-friendly environment. The school serves a diverse population of students in grades Pre-K-6. For the 2021-22 academic year, the school will add Grade 7, and the anticipated enrollment will be 130 students. The school will also add Grade 8 for the 2022-23 academic year. The school has experienced tremendous growth since the first class of 16 students and has remained true to its mission to serve a population of students in an underserved area of Nashville. The school “is dedicated to nurturing the joy of learning and the spirit of discovery in each of its students.”
