OUT-OF-THE-CLASSROOM EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING

Deer Run Outdoor Education provides 3rd through 6th grade students with a hands-on learning experience transforming how they interact with the world around them by instilling a respect for nature and an understanding of their impact on the world around them.

Deer Run is located on 100 private wooded acres of scenic, Tennessee rolling hills just 10 miles southwest of historic downtown Franklin making it the perfect Classroom environment to showcase Tennessee’s varying terrain and ecosystems.
