A school that supports what you teach in your home…and does it with excellence!

Providing the foundation for all of life

Since the Academy was established in 1971, we have sought to make a quality education available to every family in the Knoxville area. Our mission is to partner with parents to provide a Christ-centered and rigorous learning environment that will equip their student to find their place in the will of God, whatever and wherever that may be.

We are looking forward to meeting you and your family. Take the next step! Nothing compares to experiencing the learning environment at Temple Academy for yourself. A campus tour will give you the best idea of what we offer you and your child and connect you with someone who can answer your questions.

Our commitment to you

We will be your loyal and like-minded partners in delivering an exceptional education that reinforces the biblical worldview taught in your home, and providing valuable opportunities that will help your child to finding his unique place in the will of God, whatever and wherever that may be.

We don’t simply enroll a student; we embrace an entire family. You become part of Crusader Nation! This is your school, you are welcome to have lunch with your child, to meet with their teacher – we are in this together! Get involved in our school – become a room sponsor, or join the Parent Association, volunteer work team, or the Crusader Club.

We hope to meet you and your family soon. Schedule a personal tour so that you can see for yourself what Temple Academy is all about.

What makes the Academy so unique?

A commitment to biblical truth and embracing others with the love of Jesus Christ are not mutually exclusive. To the contrary, we are commanded to “speak the truth in love.” That is what you will find at Temple Academy. This approach enables us to educate the whole child – physically, mentally, and spiritually. It truly is a foundation for life.

We believe your child’s education ought to be balanced, so that you are not forced to choose between a school that offers an outstanding, faith-based education and a school that features multiple athletic teams, various fine arts offerings, and an assortment of extracurriculars. Temple Academy offers a balanced Christian educational experience because we are convinced that God uses everything in a child’s environment to shape them into the young adult He desires them to be on their graduation day.

Invest in your child's future

No one knows better than you the role the right school will play in shaping your child.

From the Lower School, where the foundation for life is laid, through the Middle School, where they begin to own their faith and make life-altering decisions, to Upper School graduation and all that lies ahead of them – you are committed to give your child the best educational experience.

During the admissions process you will find that Temple Academy is committed to make an exceptional Christian education accessible to families. We understand that each family has unique financial circumstances.

The Academy offers payment plans and affordability options to meet the needs of qualifying families. To learn more about tuition options for your family, contact our admissions director.
