Bartlett Academy to Recognize Veterans on Thursday, November 10th

Bartlett Academy is participating in the Penny Campaign to benefit our Veterans this November. Students are encouraged to bring pennies, spare change, or any monetary denomination to help support our Veterans. We are holding a school-wide assembly on Thursday, November 10th, from 11:25am to noon, to celebrate Bartlett Area Veterans, and we will deliver a check to American Legion Post 249 (Bartlett's Chapter) at that assembly. All Veterans are welcome. Any support or contribution will be greatly appreciated.

BHS Boys Cross Country Takes 5th at State!

On Saturday, Bartlett’s boy’s cross country team achieved its final goal for the season by placing 5th in the State. The last time that a team from West Tennessee placed in the top 5 was in 2011.

Avery Wood led the top 5 Bartlett runners, who all finished within 22 seconds of each other. He was followed by Luke McNair, Jackson Williams, Benji Homeyer, and Brendan Hill. They each ran over a minute faster than the team from a year ago.

Closely behind the top 5 were Jason Hamilton and Travis Jones, Bartlett’s 6th and 7th runners who beat Houston’s and Arlington’s 3rd runners to the finish line. This overwhelming defeat was significant since Bartlett had not beaten Houston any time in school history until this year and since Arlington was the returning Region Champs.

Coach Gardner heaped praise on the team recognizing that 5th place puts Bartlett among the first tier teams in the state – a position that no boy’s cross country team from Memphis has been in for a while.

Bartlett’s Gaining!

Bartlett Academy held its first annual Mix It Up Day today.

Students were issued colored wristbands in first period, and then sat with others with that same color wristband at lunch. Cheerleaders participated, and there were games and a DJ. Thank you Mrs. Isaac, for coordinating this event. We all had a great time!

Principal's Message

Monday, July 18, 2016
Welcome Class of 2020!

Freshmen and Parents of Freshmen, we are set to begin our third year at the Academy. We have had such incredibly good experiences these past two years here at Bartlett Academy. We have the best faculty in the world, and we live in the best community in the world. We are looking forward to even bigger and better things with the class of 2020.

We will start the year somewhat unofficially with our third Freshman Panther Camp on Friday, July 29th, from 8am to 1pm. Incoming freshmen will learn about the Academy and about high school. They will get to meet students who have been at the Academy the past couple of years, and they will get to meet other freshmen. Students will tour the facility and meet teachers, staff, counselors, and administrators. We will provide pizza for lunch and ice cream afterwards. Brand new Class of 2020 short-sleeve spirit t-shirts will be available for $15 - blue, red, or gray.

One of the great experiences the Academy offers is the opportunity for ninth graders who are coming to us from three different feeder schools - Appling, Bon Lin, and Elmore Park - to come together as a freshman class before they head to BHS next year. This expanded peer group is an invaluable benefit to students as they enter BHS at 10th graders. This year's freshmen will have the unique experience (so far) as sophomores when they join a BHS student body next year made up completely of students who experienced their ninth grade year at the Academy.

I want to give you some important communication links that will make this year the best it can be. First, our website address is , and we post important information here throughout the year. We also have a Facebook page - - and a Twitter page - - where we also post important news and reminders. We will post the morning announcements - the ones your son or daughter may or may not listen to, but will definitely not tell you about either way - to each of these three sites daily. Also, don't forget that you will have access to PowerSchool after Labor Day. Finally, I encourage you to sign up for Remind accounts from teachers (mine is @f8d4bb for parents, and @6cfddg for students), as well as their Edmodo mailing lists (mine is for parents, and for students).

As we go through this freshman year together, students will have some wonderful experiences and make some lasting memories. They will have the opportunity to learn some valuable lessons about the rigors and demands of a challenging high school curriculum. When all is said and done at the end of the year, these freshmen will be fully prepared for success at BHS and beyond. Thank you for being a part of your son’s or daughter’s school family with us this coming year. Together, we can make it a great one.

John McDonald, Principal
