Help transform college admissions and college access.

Empower the Journey.

Knowledge Academies is a network of public schools for families. Join us, as we reimagine new opportunities for learning, within our community and beyond.

This year, KA is proud to partner with Dr. Trina Coleman, founder of Academic Blue Bloods and Cynthia Fitzgerald, J.D., founder of In Full Motion, to launch a new paradigm for expanding college access to students and families, from traditionally under represented communities.

Dr. Coleman is the second African American women, in the U.S., to earn a Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics, Mrs. Cynthia Firtzgerald is a community service leader, and former Vice President of Legal Services, Compliance, for the Tennessee Education Lottery, also recognized by Governor Bill Haslam in his first major speech to the state legislature.

KA is a five (5) time, national award winning network of public schools.
