Academic Facilities


Great care has been applied over the years to maintain and preserve 690-acres of land and turn-of-the century buildings that overlook the Tennessee River gorge.

Notable features include:

  • The Weeks Science Building is supported with a $15 million endowment to ensure the most advanced program possible. Our facilities and research technology rival those found at leading universities. 
  • The $14 million Scotty Probasco Academic Center opened in September 2018 as the new hub for English and history classes.
  • A $1.5 million renovation of the Hedges Library transformed the space into an area that students and faculty love to visit -- further enhancing what has always been a vital part of the school community.
  • A fine arts complex featuring a theatre, dance studios, scene and costume shops, and rehearsal rooms; studio spaces for drawing, printmaking, pottery, sculpture, photography, computer graphics and painting; and a music building for choir, band, and orchestra rehearsals.


Every day you drive through the front gate, and you really appreciate what you're going into. The campus is incredible, and there are so many options for academics and athletics."
