2 Corinthians 12:9 (ESV)
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weakness, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
Power And Grace Preparatory Academy (PGPA), is a newly established Christian school in Clarksville, Tennessee. Our doors opened to classes in August of 2016. PGPA is committed to a unique mission of preparing youth for life by building character and academic excellence with an emphasis on Jesus Christ and leadership.
During our first year, we accepted students from Pre-K 4, kindergarten, and first grade. In our current school year, we have Pre-K 3, 2nd grade, 3rd grade, 4th grade, 5th grade, and 6th grade. We hope to expand to higher grades in the coming years. We are an ACSI member (Association of Christian Schools International) and will apply for AdvancED National Accreditation after the required two years of academic performance. Power and Grace is not associated with any particular church and welcomes anyone of the Christian faith to join us.
Power and Grace highly encourages the participation of parents as we believe your involvement will help to catapult your child to success. It is our belief that the partnership of teachers and parents can assist our mutual goal of providing a quality Christian education. Children learn, grow, and excel through your participation.
PGPA’s vision is to serve the community as a catalyst known for helping to launch the lives of young people into the stratosphere of success. With the motto of “Maximizing Power and Grace in YOUth,” PGPA will build character by continuously espousing the principle of P.O.W.E.R., which is the “Positive Outlook Wills Extraordinary Results” for life in Jesus Christ. Recognizing that all youth are potentially gifted, PGPA will emphasize G.R.A.C.E., meaning students are noted as “Gifted for Remarkable Academic Competence toward Excellence.” Because “power and grace” are needed metaphorically to take and sustain flight toward success as future leaders, students blessed to attend PGPA will be uniquely known as Positively Identified Leaders Of Tomorrow or P.I.L.O.T.s.
This is an awesome school and has a great program! I love how they are family-oriented and know each child personally. Their curriculum has improved my child’s level of knowledge drastically. And they keep God first! I never worry about my child’s safety there.
This is such an amazing school. I can’t say enough great things about it. My son has grown by leaps and bounds academically, socially, and emotionally over the past year. I highly recommend Power and Grace Preparatory Academy if you are looking for a safe, caring environment that focuses on traditional academics and your child’s spiritual growth and development.

Power and Grace Preparatory is worth it! I really cannot say enough about their professionalism and academic excellence while somehow still allowing for a family atmosphere. If you want your child to thrive and be prepared for success, this is THE place! From the Principal (Mrs. Stallworth) down to the before and aftercare, expect nothing less than the absolute BEST!

The AdvanceED Protocol is a performance-based model that requires engagement and gathering of data. With using a set of rigorous research-based standards and evidence-based criteria, AdvanceED Performance Accreditation examines the whole institution: the policies, programs, practices, learning conditions, and cultural context are used to determine how well the parts work together to carry out the institution’s vision and meet the needs of every learner.
While our expertise is grounded in more than 100 years of experience, AdvanceED Performance Accreditation is not about earning a label for a one-time evaluation. Rather, it recognizes those institutions that have sustained an exemplary commitment to continuous improvement and learner outcomes.
Furthermore, we are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that is nationally accredited through AdvancED/Cognia for our Pre-Kindergarten Program along with Kindergarten through 6th Grade. We attained a Certificate of Accreditation valid March 2020-2025.
