About Benton Hall Academy

The school is located at 2422 Bethlehem Loop Road in Franklin, TN catering to grades 3-12. The school believes in an academy for children who learn differently. Children who struggle academically or socially are educated with compassion and taught to maximize their potential. Children will discover their strengths and feel that they belong.

While all human beings are different in how they perceive the world, express feelings and relate to others, it's important to have schools that understand that students are going to learn differently and need a more personalized experience.


High school students must complete 22 credits to receive their diploma. This includes credits in:

  • English
  • US History
  • Sciences
  • Mathematics
  • Economics and Personal Finance
  • Foreign Language
  • Keyboarding/Computer
  • Performing Arts/Visual Arts
  • Wellness and additional elective courses

Grading is based on effort in class, homework, class work, projects and test scores.


The school allows 130 students to be admitted each academic year. This includes 84 high school students, 30 middle school students and 16 lower school students. To apply, you'll need to fill out the three-page application with the $49 application fee and the school will request copies of your child's evaluations, transcripts, immunization forms and individualized education plan.

Pay a visit to tour the academy with the dean of students, observe classes for a day and spend time with teachers and current students. Once the tour and application is received, a $375 enrollment deposit is made upon acceptance.
