Welcome to Highland Academy
Highland Academy is a Seventh-day Adventist boarding school offering quality education to grades 9-12 in a rural setting about 40 minutes north of Nashville. Its forerunner was the Fountain Head Rural School which was established on this property in 1907. Until 1945, it was operated as a self-supporting institution, a school and a hospital. Since 1945 the academy has been owned and operated by the Kentucky-Tennessee Conference of Seventh-day Adventists.
