The Bostick Female Academy, also known as Triune School, is a property in Triune, Tennessee that was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.

At one time Triune had five private schools, including a Porter Female Academy that was destroyed in 1863 in the American Civil War. On the board of the Porter Female Academy was a Dr. Jonathan Bostick, who later bequeathed funds for the Bostick Female Academy. The school was built in 1892.[1][2]

The school building includes Late Victorian architecture. The listing was for an area of 2 acres (0.81 ha) with just one contributing building.[1]

The building is an L-shaped building built in c.1892.[3]

The building operated as a private school until about 1900, then as a public school until 1957, and since has been used as a private home.[2]
