Live among like-minded people who enjoy the good life, and make your retirement whatever you want it to be!
Life here at Knoxville High is carefree and focused on fun. No more housecleaning, no more yard work, and no more driving (unless you want to). Living in a historic high school building with new friends and a full social schedule, you might just feel like a kid again. But with amenities, experiences, and cultural activities that are decidedly grown up.
Knoxville High Apartment Living is designed to be an all-inclusive lifestyle choice — your monthly fee includes most of the expenses of everyday living and covers services like housekeeping, transportation, and the most amazing chef-prepared meals you’ve ever tasted. We have 80 newly renovated apartments that are luxurious and full of architectural character, all for a price that’s more affordable than other independent living choices in Knoxville.
Our aim is to make your life easier in every respect. We want you to relax, have fun, and leave the work of daily life to us. Living at Knoxville High gives you the freedom and space to create your own signature version of retirement, all while meeting new people and enjoying the best of our growing and vibrant city.
Downsize your burdens. At Knoxville High, you’re free of the responsibilities of cooking, cleaning, and yard work, so you can pursue what makes you happiest. All transportation is included, so you can be free of your car as well if you like (or keep your car and use our valet for parking).
Eat like a king. Or queen. Executive Chef Mark Sims provides three delicious meals a day for all our guests, and we won’t be surprised if you never feel the need to go to a restaurant. The menu is seasonal, fresh, and full of surprises.
Find new friends. Knoxville High is, first and foremost, a community. Our residents eat meals together, join each other for museum trips and concerts, and form strong friendships that make life more enjoyable. We keep a full and active social calendar and welcome all our residents to join in the fun — one night, we might have a sing-along in the piano lounge; another, a wine tasting in the courtyard. You’ll never lack for things to do.
Stay well physically, emotionally, and spiritually. The health of our residents is extremely important to us. We include group wellness activities on the daily schedule such as yoga, gardening, and tai chi.
We also contract with health professionals to provide on-site services at your request, and our central location means you’ll be near Knoxville’s health care hub at Fort Sanders and the University of Tennessee Medical Center.
Many houses of worship of all faiths are located within blocks of Knoxville High. Transportation is always available so you can attend services.
Enjoy the city experience. Located where Old North Knoxville meets the historic Old City, Knoxville High gives you instant access to all the cultural activities that Knoxville is well known for: museums, restaurants, festivals, concerts, and so much more. And we often bring in local artists and organizations — like the Knoxville Opera and the East Tennessee Historical Society — for outstanding cultural programs right here on the premises.
Knoxville offers so many options for entertainment it’s impossible to list them all. Bowl with your friends in a historic boutique bowling alley. Dine overlooking the gently flowing Tennessee River. Hear the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra in the historic Tennessee Theatre. Or enjoy Saturday game-day festivities for the University of Tennessee without having to get behind the wheel of a car.
Knoxville’s cultural life is blossoming like never before, and there’s always something new to try.
