Tennessee Correction Academy


The Tennessee Correction Academy, located in the city of Tullahoma, serves as the State's primary training and staff development center for the Department of Correction.  Additionally, we provide training to the State's Division of Probation and Parole, and its Department of Children's Services personnel.  Each year, over 6,000 people attend one of the Academy's numerous pre-service, in-service, or specialized training schools.


The Academy opened its doors in January, 1984, with a commitment to contributing to the organization's success through providing quality staff training programs.  In 1993, TCA became the second correctional training academy in the nation to be fully accredited by the American Correctional Association.  Such a distinction has resulted in numerous visits from Correctional Administrators and Specialists nationwide, who seek to establish top-grade training programs in their respective states.
