Thank you to all students, parents, administrators, trainers, faculty, staff and supporters. Thank you to our dedicated parents who sacrificed their time, resources, and support during your child’s academic and athletic journey. Congratulations to all the student athletes who made it through the difficult year as we all encountered COVID-19. Our students here at Tennessee Preparatory Academy showed excellent growth on and off the court. The standard of excellence for Tennessee Preparatory Academy is at a new height.

I’m especially proud of the academic achievements of the student-athletes this school year. In addition to our many fine student and academic honorees, we must recognize all student-athletes that put in the extra effort academically to better themselves. First and foremost, each Tennessee Preparatory Academy athlete is a student first. There is no basketball at Tennessee Preparatory Academy without academic commitment.

While the team and the program had great win-loss records, they’ve enjoyed their share of big victories and emotional defeats, the games this past season will eventually fade into fragmented memories. In the end the measures of success are not the statistics or wins, rather, they are the friendships, lessons, and maturing that are the results of effort, selfless commitment to the team and dedication to personal betterment the student-athletes. The 2021 Tennessee Preparatory Academy Boys Varsity basketball program was truly successful. As the President, I am fortunate to have been a part of it.

As I look back, I cannot help but to look forward to the 2021-2022 school year. I am excited to see how the student-athletes of 2021-2022 embrace the legacy of Tennessee Preparatory Academy.

Education, Everyday
Harold Rayford Jr
President

It is with our deepest sorrow that we inform you of the death of our beloved alumni Adam Saeed. Adam was a major part of Tennessee Preparatory Academy’s inaugural year in 2015.
Adam was the team captain where he displayed his array of talents. He played under Coach Harold Rayford on the National High School team.

“It’s with deep sadness that this has happened to Adam. Adam will always have a piece of my heart and I will always remember Adam for all of his efforts and determination to be successful on and off the court. Adam Saeed was a SUPER TALENT that loved the game of basketball. I asked all Alumni, Supports, Faculty, Staff and our student body to keep Adam and his family in your prayers. - Mr Craig Saeed and wife we thank you for allowing your son to finish his High School career with us here at Tennessee Preparatory Academy.” - President Harold Rayford

After Graduation Adam received a full scholarship to Shawnee Community College then soon after finished his collegiate basketball career at Savannah State University.
Adam was on his way to becoming a professional basketball player this season.

Adam leaves behind a beautiful baby boy
(Xyamore’ Saeed)
Please keep Adam and his family in your prayers.

Adam we love ❤️ you!
