Welcome

One Community. One School.

As a community day school, we bring together a unique cross-section of families from Nashville’s Jewish community. Reform, Chabad, Orthodox, Conservative and unaffiliated individuals are included among our students, our faculty and staff, and our Board of Directors.

Akiva does not discriminate on the basis of color, race, national and ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, financial aid, athletic and other administered programs.

Tuition

The full cost of educating a child at Akiva is approximately $20,000 per year. Therefore, every child attending Akiva receives a substantial subsidy, thanks to the generosity of our donors, and the Jewish Federation of Nashville and Middle Tennessee.

2020-2021 Tuition

  • $13,990 per child
  • $450 supplies and security fee

Total cost of 2020-2021 school year: $14,440

All enrolled Akiva families must also be members of the Gordon Jewish Community Center. For more information about their membership costs please contact the GJCC directly.
