Mrs. Crystal Dunn grew up overseas in Aberdeen Scotland. Growing up in Europe sparked her love and passion for the arts. She returned to the States to attend the University of New Orleans where she received her B.F.A in studio painting. After graduation, she was hired by her church for administrative support and to manage 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 connected with the New Orleans Homeschool Association and taught Art/Art History to elementary aged students.
In 2016, Mrs. Dunn moved to Franklin with her husband, Bradley and twin sons, Elijah and Daniel. 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.”
