  • Ivy Academy is partners with the United States Department of Agriculture because of our environmental, green energy and agricultural programming.  USDA sponsored our new campus in 2014.  
  • Ivy Academy is a Tennessee public charter school and started in 2009, the inaugural year for charter schools in Hamilton County when the laws in our state only allowed for students who were failing or who attended schools in the bottom five percent of schools in our state to attend charter schools.  Since then, the laws have changed.  We now have open enrollment and any student within our county may attend a charter school. Our student enrollment is steadily increasing.  Our state assessment scores are steadily increasing.
