Dedicated teachers

“I attended Temple Academy from kindergarten through high school graduation in 2008. I believe, to a great degree, I was prepared to complete one of the most prestigious engineering programs in the country because of the dedication of my teachers at Temple. I am grateful for the effort, time, and prayer that the faculty invested in me while I was at the Academy.”

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.

Bible-based curriculum

“I am grateful for the eternal investment my parents made to send me and my sisters to Temple Academy.  The influence of my teachers and emphasis of a Bible-based curriculum brought me to an awareness of God’s presence and my personal accountability to Him.”

Shared faith

“I have the opportunity to work with outstanding students and faculty in the College of Education at Lipscomb University. I can share my passion for teaching and learning – focusing on more than academics. While at Temple, our teachers went out of their way to assist students in their learning and shared their faith with us. I will always be grateful to them and want to model their examples with my graduate students.”
