Since the Academy was established in 1971, we have sought to make a quality education available to every family with the lowest costs of any private Christian school in the Knoxville area.

Our task is not to take the place of the home, it is to come alongside parents and assist them in laying a Christ-honoring educational foundation for their child’s life.

Academic Excellence

From Kindergarten through high school, the Academy’s faculty possess the professional experience and credentials required to provide your child with a solid academic foundation. Temple Academy has earned the highest academic accreditation available in the state of Tennessee.

Student Life

Every child should be prepared to recognize and fulfill God’s eternal purpose for their life. Our work goes beyond academic instruction, it includes influencing students to make a difference for Christ in this world.  At Temple, each student is challenged to “take the high road” by choosing to pursue Christ in everything they do.

Temple Academy admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
Spiritual Life

Continuously seeking to become like Christ in every area of life.
