thinking of moving from PA to TN or KY. would love to hear where in TN you live, what your job is, and anything you can tell me about your area.


We are hoping to buy some land (like 15 acres) and have a small farm. we are homeschooling so schools don't matter, but id like to know about HS laws in TN.


Thanks in advance for any info!!!

It looks like your post might have been missed so I'm bumping it up for attention. :bump: Anyone have experiences in TN to share?

We moved to Tennessee 3 years ago.  We live in the south Clarksville area, putting us north of Nashville by about 45 minutes' drive.  Lots of open land out here, yet it's easy access to all the conveniences.  I'm a birth doula and childbirth educator.

Heidi, join the Memphis Birth Collective. May be worthwhile to drive in.

Late to this thread but I live in Chattanooga and love it! I don't homeschool but I know lots of people who do and my sister HS'd my niece through 4th grade. I believe it's very common here and the laws are very accepting from what I understand. Good luck!
