The Timelessness of Rigorous Academic Standards Known for both its academic rigor and groundbreaking research, Peabody College is among the top schools in the country. The importance of high academic standards and a challenging curriculum has been a critical factor in the school’s evolution from Davidson Academy (est. 1785) to Cumberland College (est. 1806) to the University of Nashville (est. 1825). These students worked hard to receive passing marks and enjoyed their strong relationships with faculty, much as we do today.
