Overview of Campus Life At Bachman Academy


Bachman Academy is located on 188-acres of beautiful rolling hills and country farmland in East Tennessee. A highlight of the campus is the equestrian program with more than 15 horses available to ride on the several miles of beautiful wooded trails traversing the acreage. There is also a pavilion centrally located on campus and adjacent to it are a tennis court, a basketball court, a volleyball court, and a full-size, in-ground swimming pool. The campus also boasts a lake, suitable for canoeing, swimming, and fishing.

In an effort to create a well-rounded residential program, a variety of activities are implemented on a regular basis. Current students are encouraged to offer their ideas and suggestions to their student council representatives for additional activity ideas.

Evening and weekend programs include: special weeknight activities, monthly programs in each dorm, and weekend activities that include on-campus and off-campus options.
