Tipton-Rosemark Academy, dual-accredited through the Southern Association of Independent Schools and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, began in 1965, when a group of citizens became concerned about the quality of their children's education because prayer and the Bible had been removed from public schools. It was their desire that Christian teaching remain a part of their children's education. They established an elementary school (1-8) in a house in Munford and named it Tipton Academy. A new school facility was built in Brighton in 1967 and doubled in 1970 with a kindergarten facility being added. In 1970, the Academy also purchased Rosemark School from Shelby County to expand its system to include grades 9-12 and named this Rosemark Academy.
In 1986, the seventh and the eighth grades were moved to the high school campus as the initial step in consolidation of all grades (K-12) on the Rosemark campus.
In 1988, a new elementary school was built on the Rosemark campus for grades 1-6, while the existing building was converted for use as a kindergarten. The school then combined the names to become Tipton-Rosemark Academy.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight.
