After noticing the amount of trash lining Larkin Springs road as they travel to and from school, the Junior Class knew they had a choice… Complain or Act. So, they strapped on orange vests. Armed with trash grabbers and bags, they took on the neighborhood. Devoted Servants. That was their choice. That is the Madison Advantage.
Thanks for voting last week for our Giving Tuesday project. The winner is fixing the gym and adding an air circulation system!

If you want to be part of our Giving Tuesday team and help make a bigger impact at Madison Academy please contact Taleah Vallés-Peters
We are excited about our Spring Break Mission Trip this year! We have looked at a number of locations and feel led to go to Puerto Rico to assist in repairs and the continued recovery from last year’s hurricane. We will be doing repair work at a local Adventist school and at numerous homes in the community. We will be working out of a town called Las Piedras which is southeast of San Juan. We will be staying at a local Adventist church and have hired a couple of the church members to cook authentic Puerto Rico cuisine while we are there. The dates will be February 27-March 8, 2019. We can take up to 40 participants on this trip, so first come first served sign-ups. The cost will be $1100. $100 down payment will reserve your spot on the list (please make checks out to Madison Academy). Since Puerto Rico is a U.S. territory, no passport is required. If you have any questions, please reach out to me.
Thanks to a gift from donors last year we were able to purchase and wrap two 12-passenger vans. These vans have taken our students all over… from drama outings to sports tournaments, from volunteering at the 403 Center to field trips to the Chamber of Commerce. These vans have been well used and truly loved. Private support is what makes it possible for us to not only transport our students around Middle TN, but also promote our school at the same time. If you want to help support any projects, contact our Director of Development, Taleah Valles-Peters.
The members of the Class of 2022 elected their officers: President – Nic Johnson, Pastor -Kyla Wetmore, Activities Coordinator – Julie Harvey, Finance Officer – Kaylyn Levoy, and Communications Coordinator – Samantha Martin. The incoming Freshmen class were able to identify their classmates strengths in leadership during the first weeks of school, and during the Student/Faculty retreat held annually at Indian Creek Camp, and as they participated in our Week of Prayer.
The other classes elected their officers in the Spring after the Student Council members are elected. All the officers for both Student Council and Class must have completed their 25 hours of community service to be eligible for office in addition to the other requirements for office.
