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 Catholic 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.
ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE As one of Nashville's premier Catholic schools, academic excellence is an everyday occurrence. Our faculty and staff strive to provide the children with all they need to excel in school and life. Students grow personally and are stretched intellectually under the guidance of a faculty committed to caring for each student as an individual.
NURTURING the INDIVIDUAL The exceptional faculty of Overbrook honor the dignity of each child and encourage the development of their individual gifts. Our highly qualified faculty and staff work in tandem with parents, accompanying each child from kindergarten through sixth grade to meet students’ educational, spiritual, physical, and emotional needs.

The Year Overbrook Recognized as a Blue Ribbon School
Ryan N. Clark, Overbrook Father
"Overbrook's combination of stellar academics and a nurturing family environment are unmatched. We could not have made a better choice."
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.
