About CAK

Deuteronomy 6:5-7

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.
In 1977, people from different denominational backgrounds worked together to establish a nondenominational Christian School in West Knoxville, based on the Lord's tug at their hearts to follow the commands given in Deuteronomy 6. Their vision was for Christian Academy of Knoxville (CAK) to be an extension of the Christian home with excellence in academics to prepare students for college and careers. That vision lives on today.

Sitting on a 77-acre campus, CAK brings together students from over 140 churches to study, grow, and pray together. We are intentional in our approach to educating students in a way that reflects relationships, excellence, and service all to the glory of God. This distinction guides our academic curriculum, athletics, and art programs as we seek to help students integrate their faith into the various disciplines of study.

CAK is proud to be accredited by both the AdvancED/Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS/AdvancED) and the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI). CAK was recently voted 2019's "Favorite Private School" in the Knoxville News Sentinel and "1st Place Christian School" in City View Magazine.

We hope you will take some time to look around our website and consider a campus tour. We would love to meet you!
