High School Will Relocate to New Building on UofM Lambuth Campus

July 31, 2019 - The Tennessee Comptroller’s Office has approved the financing arrangement for a dual enrollment high school to be built by the City of Jackson on the University of Memphis Lambuth Campus.

The existing Madison Academic High School will move into a new facility on the Lambuth campus in Jackson, Tenn. The new high school will face Lambuth Boulevard, where Epworth Hall, a former residence hall, stood.

The new building will allow Madison Academic to expand enrollment from approximately 450 to 600, and will allow its students to take dual enrollment classes with the UofM, either with faculty at the Lambuth campus, in the high school with Lambuth faculty or through UofM Global, the University’s online program.

“The UofM Lambuth community is very excited about our partnership and Madison Academic’s relocation to our campus, and we look forward to those excellent students taking classes with us,” said Dr. Niles Reddick, dean of UofM Lambuth and chief operating officer of the Lambuth and Millington campuses.

Currently, the Madison Academic baseball and soccer teams use outdoor athletic fields on the Lambuth campus, and the school’s relocation will allow its basketball team to use the Lambuth gym. Through the partnership, Madison Academic students also will have use of other facilities on the campus, including the theatre, chapel and library.
