Antioch Middle Prep is excited about the future under the leadership of new Executive Principal Celia Conley.

Principal Conley and AMP faculty aim to be the top-performing Middle Prep in Metro Nashville Public Schools by 2020, a goal developed during a summer retreat at Antioch Middle Prep partner Nelson Andrews Leadership Lodge where faculty casted a new school vision.

The consistently-stated mantra, “Bears 2020”, reminds faculty daily where the ultimate goal is. Teachers and administrators are working tirelessly to provide an atmosphere that fosters high-performance instruction and quality out-of-the-classroom activities, in order to shape the lives of fifth through eighth grade students.

A Community Involvement Specialist is the most recent addition to the staff at AMP. Dan Moranville joined the staff in January 2016 to build community partnerships, improve parent engagement, and increase recruitment and retention of students from 5th to 8th grade.


Antioch Middle Prep is located at 5050 Blue Hole Road in Antioch and serves students who transition from Cole and Cane Ridge Elementary Schools. Eighth grade students are promoted to Cane Ridge High School, where they have the opportunity to learn in career-themed Academies of Nashville. Celia Conley serves Antioch Middle Prep as the new Executive Principal.
