Mrs. Crystal Dunn grew up overseas in Aberdeen Scotland. Growing up in Europe sparked her love and passion for the arts. She would return State side and attend the University of New Orleans where she worked toward her B.F.A in studio painting. Upon graduation, she was hired by her church for Administrative support and managing the rapidly growing Children's Ministry. Overseeing the Children’s Ministry helped her to connect with parents that so desperately craved the Arts in their homeschool co-ops. She would connect with the New Orleans Homeschool Association and begin teaching Art/Art History to elementary aged students.
Mrs. Dunn moved to Franklin with her husband, Bradley and twin sons, Elijah and Daniel, in 2016. As a believer, she knew the importance of being educated in Christ, and having Him in the center of all things. She knew she had to find a school that aligned with her beliefs and showed importance for the arts. The Classical Academy offered both of those things! Her life verse is Phil 2:3, “Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.”
