Supporting Homeschool Families in Tennessee


Anthem Umbrella School exists to support families in Tennessee as they pursue a quality education through homeschooling. With over 27 years of experience in the homeschool community through our associated tutorial, New Song Christian Academy, we want to help families successfully navigate each educational season as they focus on training their children in the context of a biblical worldview.

We are a Category IV church-related school in the state of Tennessee and a member of the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI).

Our Services


We are currently accepting applications for the 2024-25 School Year for Kindergarten through 12th Grade.


We maintain and report academic and attendance records as required by the State of Tennessee using FACTS web-based Family Portal. We will also assist with school transfers as needed.


As your family is considering educational options for your children, we can assist with choosing curriculum as well as offer additional support relating to structuring home days and choosing support programs like tutorials and extracurricular activities.


Anthem Umbrella School is the umbrella arm of New Song Christian Academy. When you register with Anthem, your registered children are invited to participate in school activities planned, including field trips. For more information, visit NSCA.


Current NSCA families: If you move to Anthem from another umbrella program with a lower fee, we will match their fees this year as an incentive for helping us build our program. Email us to take advantage of this offer.

Anthem Umbrella School is a Category IV School registered with the State of Tennessee. We cannot guarantee that placement testing will not be required upon your student entering another school.

Anthem Umbrella School operates under the Tennessee Legal Homeschooling Option No. 3. Under this option, your home is considered a satellite campus of our church-related school. The Tennessee Department of Education recognized this option in a memorandum from the Commissioner of Education to Superintendents and Directors of schools dated February 18, 1999. Under this option, parents need not comply with the notice and registration requirements of the homeschool statute. The state board of education and local boards shall not prohibit or impede the transfer of a student from a church-related school to a public school of this state. Local boards may, however, place students transferring from a church-related school to a public school in a grade level based upon a student’s performance on a test administered by the board for that purpose. (See Tennessee Code Annotated § 49-50-801.)
