Try Ivy Days
are semi-annual, simulated school days designed to introduce prospective students and parents to Ivy Academy.
We host sessions that concentrate on our unique educational approach; as well as, demonstrate how we incorporate service learning, environmentalism, and sustainability into our curriculum.
The schedule for Try Ivy Day is divided into two main formats: Information Sessions and Outdoors Sessions.
Information Sessions are conducted indoors and give families an idea of Ivy’s school climate and culture.
Outdoor Sessions take families out into the North Chickamauga Creek Conservancy, adjacent to the school’s campus. This portion of Try Ivy Day is designed to showcase our outdoor classrooms and introduce prospective students to outdoor educational approaches at Ivy Academy. The outdoor session of our next Try Ivy Day will be a native species egg hunt sponsored and led by Ivy's high school Scientific Research Class. Come help us find replicas of bald eagles, cliff swallows, salamanders, hummingbirds, box turtles, and more.
Both formats are necessary in order to give prospective families a proper introduction to the multi-faceted educational opportunities Ivy Academy has to offer Hamilton County.
Please note: we have filled our student body for the 2017/2018 school year. We welcome anyone from the community to join us for Try Ivy, but we do not have any space available for next school year. We encourage those who hope to apply for the 2018/2019 school year and beyond to visit.
