Lipscomb Academy is located on two campuses in Green Hills only one mile apart.
Our lower school (SEED School through fourth grade) is located near the corner of Harding Place and Granny White at 4517 Granny White Pike. Our upper school (Grades 5-12) is located on the campus of Lipscomb University at 3901 Granny White Pike.
The Griffith Family Soccer Field and Complex includes a competition soccer field with lighting, a practice field, home and visitor locker rooms, public restrooms and a concession stand. It is located on the west side of Franklin Road just past the intersection with Caldwell Lane.
The iWonder Innovation Lab, completed in September 2017, is a permanent space that allows teachers to issue academic challenges that encourage students to learn on a deeper level. The lab regularly hosts students in grades 5-12. Students work collaboratively using a variety of tools, such as 3D printers, robots, computer-aided design, graphic design programs, large-format printers, a full kitchen, power tools, woodworking and other prototyping supplies. The lab was modeled from similar cutting-edge “maker spaces” that were seen at both the university level and at pioneering high schools in the Southeast.
In September 2018, Lipscomb Academy officials announced plans for a $6.5 million investment in facility expansion at the Brewer Campus, which houses the lower school. The first phase includes 22,000 square feet of new construction and 1,500 square feet of renovated space, including classrooms, administrative offices, an additional entrance and lobby area, restrooms, and a state-of-the-art learning commons, an innovative collaborative hub that offers students technology-rich research stations, flexible furnishings, collaborative instructional spaces, inviting reading areas, access to library materials and creative maker space materials among other features. Construction is expected to start in spring 2019.
Leaders also announced plans to launch specific education and support services for students with special needs at Lipscomb Academy’s lower school. The special needs program will launch in fall 2019, with its own learning space at the lower school that provides the access, flexibility, sensory accommodations and the safety needed to ensure a successful educational experience for students. Construction of this dedicated learning space is included in the spring 2019 expansion.
