Thanks to the generous support of parents, alumni, faculty, staff, grandparents, trustees and friends, Christian Academy of Knoxville continues to build on the dream of Christian families who founded CAK over 40 years ago. 

"As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace." - 1 Peter 4:10

The philanthropy of our donors allows CAK to broaden out academic offerings, provide enriching opportunities, and grow the next generation, our legacy, to spread the gospel and love of Jesus Christ into the world. As an independent school, CAK is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) tax-deductible organization. We do not receive federal, state, or local financial support from taxpayers nor do we have a parent church to provide funding to our school. We do, however, receive donations that provide funding for need-based tuition assistance and to make capital improvements when needed. 

We invite you to learn more about supporting CAK. Our current Annual Report is a great place to start. This report highlights our accomplishments during the past year, and lays the groundwork for our vision for the future. There are many ways to contribute and make a difference in the lives of our students including our annual fund, our endowment fund, and planned giving.

Thank you for your support and commitment to our school.
