Currey Ingram Academy was founded as Westminster School of Nashville in 1968 and was housed in Westminster Presbyterian Church for 34 years.
Thanks to a lead gift from alumni parents Stephanie Currey Ingram and John Rivers Ingram, the school moved to its current 83-acre campus in 2002.
In recent years, students have enrolled from more than 33 states and eight foreign countries, their families citing Currey Ingram Academy as a major reason for their move to Middle Tennessee.
