Welcome to Tate's School


Tate's School is an independent, private day school that has been serving the Knoxville area since 1968. Tate’s School is rooted in offering an accelerated, 21st-century curriculum that instills academic excellence in our students. We guide our students to reach their optimum potential intellectually, physically, and socially. Each student is challenged to think critically and creatively in a structured environment where excellence is rewarded and individual effort is encouraged.  Utilizing our extensive, 54 acre campus as an extension of our classrooms, our curriculum includes personal experience, hands-on activities, and collaborative learning. Tate's School is blessed to have a caring, enthusiastic, well-educated faculty and staff who are dedicated to assisting our students with their intellectual development, and empowering the students to become successful, productive, accountable young men and women of sound character and reputation.
We invite you to browse through our website and become more familiar with who we are and what we can do for you and your child. Although we have done our best to reasonably represent our school online, there is no substitute for the real thing. To really experience the Tate’s difference, we invite you to visit to meet our staff, tour our campus, and experience Tate’s School for yourself. Should you have questions, or like to schedule a tour, please contact us.
