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 school year for grades 3-12.
