Renew Christian Academy is NOT an umbrella program: 

  • To legally homeschool, students have to be registered with either a local school district, church related umbrella school or register with an accredited online program. For more information about legal homeschool options: https://www.tn.gov/education/school-options/home-schooling-in-tn.html
  • Renew Christian Academy is NOT an umbrella school. If your child attends Renew Christian Academy, they will need to register with an umbrella program. To find umbrella programs (and so much more to do with homeschooling) within Tennessee check out Middle Tennessee Homeschool Education Association at mthea.org.

Does RCA accept children with IEPs? 

  • Renew Christian Academy is not equipped to teach all students with an IEP (Individual Education Program). However, we will review each student’s IEP requirements and make an enrollment decision on a case-by-case basis.
