We Believe

We believe in Benton Hall Academy where children who learn differently are educated with compassion, where children who struggle academically and socially are inspired to discover their strengths and maximize their potential, and where children who have been on the outside looking in are invited to belong.

Big Payback


The Big Payback annual giving day is returning on Wednesday, May 3, and BHA is excited to take part in this monumental event for the second time.

The Big Payback, hosted by The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, is a community-wide giving day that celebrates Middle Tennessee’s spirit of generosity and supports the life-changing work of area nonprofits.

Kicking off at midnight on Wednesday, May 3, the 24-hour online giving day helps organizations, like BHA, raise much-needed funds and bring awareness to pressing needs in our community.

Gifts made to participating organizations during The Big Payback are amplified by incentives and awards and may help us qualify for special prizes and bonuses throughout the day.

Since its inception in 2014, Middle Tennessee’s annual day of giving has raised more than $6.75 million for nearly 800 area nonprofits, including schools and religious institutions.

We hope you’ll support BHA and our mission on Wednesday, May 3 during The Big Payback at https://www.thebigpayback.org/BHA

BHA is located at:

The Nashville Korean Presbyterian Church

5555 Franklin Pike


The school is celebrating 39 years of serving students who excel in a non-traditional academic environment made up of smaller classrooms, low student-teacher ratios, and where the curriculum is unique to each student.

One student stated, “Just because I can’t do it the way you can, doesn’t mean I can’t do it!


On Tuesday, October 11th, Benton Hall Academy was welcomed by Mayor Megan Barry back to Davidson County.  BHA is so thankful to have had Mayor Barry, Vice Mayor Briley and Oak Hill Mayor Heidi Campbell in attendance along with board members, staff, students, families, former students, the Nashville Korean Presbyterian Church pastors, and community members.

The BHA Admission Office is still accepting applications for the 2016-2017 & 2017-2018 school year for grades 3-12.
