Holy Rosary Academy is a pre-K through eighth-grade Catholic school located in Nashville, Tennessee. For over sixty years, Holy Rosary has been providing young men and women with a solid, life-long educational foundation rooted in academic rigor and animated by the truth and charity of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. A unique characteristic of Holy Rosary is the school's ability to adapt to the particular needs and circumstances of each child. This is most evident in Holy Rosary's Exceptional Education program which serves students with diagnosed learning disabilities and students who need extra support in and out of the classroom.

Although this program is not specifically a special education program, it is made up of teachers with special education degrees and significant experience working with students with learning disabilities. While the program has been updated and adapted over the years to meet the needs of the students, the Exceptional Education program today consists of over 40 students who have successfully integrated into the school and are successfully learning. Holy Rosary Academy views each child as a unique and unrepeatable gift from God and develops its program around the success of each one.
