Meredith-Dunn School was founded in 1971, by Shirley Meredith and David Dunn, as a tutorial service for three part-time students. These much needed services were soon expanded to include evaluations, additional tutoring, Saturday classes, and a summer remedial program. By 1978, a full day private school was operational. In 1997, the school program was accredited by the Independent Schools Association of the Central States (ISACS). Today, Meredith-Dunn School enrollment equals up to 200 students, from 23 different zip codes in the metropolitan Louisville area and surrounding counties.
