Her focus will be managing student records, overseeing and expanding the career advising program, and developing informational materials to distribute to our students and families.
For immediate release, June 4, 2021 Knoxville, TN - Christian Academy of Knoxville is excited to announce Hannah Seaver as the new High School Varsity Head Softball Coach.

Christian Academy of Knoxville is excited to announce that long-time and beloved middle school teacher, Mr. Glen Davenport, will be CAK’s Director of Christian Life. This is a new position created out of the desire to fulfill the mission of CAK by leading students, teachers, and families into a deeper relationship with Christ.
Father and former “Pride of the Southland Band” member, Kyle Phillips, is happy that both of his children, Harrison (9th) and Monty (6th), are in Christian Academy of Knoxville’s band program. Harrison plays the trumpet in the high school band and Monty plays percussion in the middle school band.
Have the possibility of graduating from college a full year early? Yes, please! That’s what many parents think when they learn that Christian Academy of Knoxville offers both Advanced Placement and Dual Enrollment classes.
Servants, Scholars, Disciples. Those three words encompass the very heart of Christian Academy of Knoxville, and each of our grade levels lives them out with service projects throughout the year. One tradition that our elementary students look forward to is the annual Water Walk, an activity and service project for the elementary organized by CAK's 6th-grade class.
The H2O For Life Water Walk partners CAK with Nasaruni Academy, a school in rural Kenya, to provide access to clean and safe water. 6th graders learn about the global water crisis, complete STEM projects that aid in bringing clean water, and facilitate the Water Walk event itself.
If your middle school student has never taken a day of piano lessons, don’t let that stop them from exploring the piano lab elective in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. First-year CAK teacher, Bradley Thompson, will go through teaching your student how to read music and play the piano at the same time.
Spring is in the air and it is so nice to be able to open the windows and do more activities outside. As we have said all year, we are committed to making updates regarding COVID-19 as more information is available.
The ‘Earth’ without ‘art’ is just ‘eh’. Thankfully we don’t have to imagine a world without art, and the students in Ms. Hannah Seaver’s Middle School art classes at Christian Academy of Knoxville are especially happy about that!
When the hit show CSI first aired in October of 2000, no one imagined the fascination with crime scene investigation would grow so quickly! Now, over two decades later, there is a plethora of crime shows airing with high viewer ratings.
Graphic design is all around us. Everywhere we look - advertisements, websites, packaging, publications, even on the printed T-shirts we wear! Graphic design helps us communicate ideas through visual compositions and imagery, but it takes a specific set of skills and software to produce. Christian Academy of Knoxville students who are interested in exploring this career path are getting first-hand experience!
