Tennessee Schools and Colleges

Popular for its country music, Tennessee is becoming an increasingly popular place to obtain an advanced post high school education. The public school system, The University of Tennessee system, is administered by the Tennessee Higher Education Commission. With campuses scattered across Tennessee, four-year universities, community schools, and numerous tech schools all make up the public school system. 12,000 graduate and undergraduate students attend Vanderbilt University, which is the largest private school in Tennessee. Online learning is another advantage of Tennessee’s academic institutions (both public and private), as the virtual learning environments afford people the opportunity to pursue their scholastic goals without cramping their already tight weekly schedules.
