Preparation for my future

“At Temple, our teachers worked hard to prepare us for what lay ahead. Many of the classes I took while at the Academy were as rigorous as those I later took in college, so I already had a basic understanding of subject matter and was better able to handle college-level academics.”

Grateful for influence

As alumni, my wife and I are both grateful for the influence Temple Academy has had on our lives. I have watched two brothers, three sisters-in-law, and now my own daughter grow up and graduate under the influence of the same school. The Lord truly blessed our family when He led us to Temple.
