About

Campus & Directions

St. Cecilia Academy is situated on the beautiful 83-acre Dominican Campus in West Nashville. Home to Overbrook School (a preK-8 coed elementary school), St. Cecilia Academy (all-girls high school), and Aquinas College (a small college specializing in bachelor and master degrees in education and the liberal arts), the Dominican Campus provides a peaceful respite from the bustle of Harding Pike and the growing Nashville area. Originally home to the Overbrook estate, the property was purchased by the Dominican Sisters in 1923. The campus became home first to Overbrook School in 1936, then to the re-located St. Cecilia Academy in 1957. In addition to providing the perfect environment for outdoor classroom exploration and research, the campus also features athletic fields, a full-sized track, multiple tennis courts, and a cross country course that hosts the diocesan elementary school meets.
