Overbrook School is a Catholic, coeducational school for grades prekindergarten through sixth where children grow and learn through prayer, study, community, and service. Providing a private education in Nashville since 1936, this dynamic tradition of learning melds the time-honored with the innovative, shaping children's minds and hearts through a faith-based program of academic rigor and wonder that emphasizes the pursuit of wisdom as a shared journey of discovery.
Long considered among the best private schools in Nashville, Overbrook was the first Catholic elementary school in Nashville to be named a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence by the United States Department of Education. The school is accredited by and a member of the National Catholic Education Association.
Overbrook School’s curriculum challenges children to think critically and master skills in all subject areas. The academic program follows a spiral curriculum which provides constant reinforcement of those skills and allows the students to develop a deeper understanding of the concepts presented. Then, from the knowledge of these foundational truths, other branches of knowledge and learning are formed and deepened.
Overbrook School admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin who demonstrate academic and personal potential and a desire to be part of the faith-based mission of the school to all rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, or national origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
