About Our School Program

Westminster Academy is the only JK-12 classical Christian independent school located in Memphis, TN. We are one of more than 200 private schools across the nation implementing this purposeful, powerful, and proven method of education that inspires students to become thoughtful, disciplined, and engaged learners who are encouraged to love God and to be captivated by His created world. This Christ-centered program emphasizes classical methodology – Socratic teaching requiring students to understand concepts and grasp information by exercising their own reasoning skills. Formal logic, rhetoric, and Latin teach the skills of sound reasoning, disciplined investigation and persuasive communication. This private education is for parents who are passionate about what their children learn and how they learn it.

About Our Community & Mission

Westminster Academy’s foremost conviction is that parents are responsible for the education of their children; therefore, parents are welcome and encouraged to participate in the daily life of the school. This understanding goes beyond the concept of volunteering. We have an open door policy; parents are welcome to sit in on any class, at any time, for any reason.

About The Area We Serve

Westminster is located in the heart of East Memphis, conveniently just off Interstate 385.
