Program Overview

WELCOME and thank you for your interest in Tulip Grove Christian Academy! 

We are a ministry of Tulip Grove Baptist Church in Old Hickory and meet August-May on Mondays at 563 Shute Lane.  Our mission is to bring our homeschooling community together so we may support each other from a biblical worldview through fellowship, enrichment, and academics. As the top priority, we seek to glorify the Lord in all that we do. He continues to guide and bless our steps since stepping out in faith to begin our group in the spring of 2013.

Please feel free to contact us at if you have any questions. If you would like to get better acquainted with our home school tutorial program, we will be happy to schedule an interview and a tour of our facility.

We look forward to meeting you!

Praising Him,

 Bridgette Leonard


Let all who seek You rejoice and be glad in You;

And let those who love Your salvation say continually, “Let God be magnified.” 

Psalm 70:4
