THE BIGGEST NEWS IN NEW APPROACH HISTORY!

We are so proud to share a tidal wave of news about the future direction of New Approach School for Jewelers, and to share the exciting developments happening at NASJ 

Many of you know that a big dream has been to purchase property and build a custom modern facility to expand NASJ and the services we offer. In December 2015 that dream became a reality when we purchased a beautiful 28-acre property, just ten miles east of Franklin in Arrington, Tennessee and built an amazing new school.

The new 8700 square foot facility is spacious and very unique. The building is designed to resemble the crown of a stone, with an amazing courtyard as the pavilion. So…the building looks just like a gemstone! It’s really wonderful and I cannot wait for you to see it, and be a part of it. 

What is the Go Further program?

It's a fund-raising program where you can help us create the training facility of the future while receiving substantial rewards for your contribution. We've designed a program that has immediate rewards to you including:

  • Discounts on classes

  • Personalized bricks on the new campus patio

  • NASJ apparel

  • Master series videos

  • All contributions will go directly toward our new campus, allowing us to enhance and upgrade the facilities with more advanced tools, equipment and exciting classes for the future.

  • The last 20 years has been an amazing journey. This is the start of something even more incredible! We would truly appreciate your support of our Go Further campaign. 

Your support will help us grow the curriculum even more, and create a 21st century facility that will be a great resource for you, your business and future generations of jewelers, helping to advance your career and deliver the most advanced technology, techniques and methods for your continued success.

We look forward to seeing you on the new campus very soon!
