Independent Schools of the Nashville Area (ISNA)

Father Ryan High School is proud to be a full member of the Independent Schools of the Nashville Area (ISNA).  As a full member, along with a select group of other elite, independent schools, we adhere to a quiet period between the acceptance notification date (March 1, 2025) and the parent response deadline (March 5, 2025). We understand this can be a critical time for families selecting schools. If you need anything during this quiet period, while we cannot initiate contact to families, you are encouraged to reach out to the Office of Admissions with any questions.

We look forward to working with your family!
